Firaxis Games plans to build a bright future for the Civilization franchise


The Anti-Civ-pation is killing us.

It’s been seven years since players got their hands on Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and news from developer Firaxis Games (XCOM, Marvel’s Midnight Suns) has provided an update on the future of the series. The news comes from a quote from former chief operating officer who was just appointed as Firaxis Games’ new studio head, Heather Hazen.

In an interview with Business Wire, Hanzen said, “I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to continue the studio’s storied legacy, starting with the announcement that Firaxis is developing the next iteration of the iconic Civilization franchise.”

While the quote doesn’t give a direct name for what this next title might be or how far along Firaxis Games is in its development, it likely will be Sid Meier’s Civilization VII. The last spin-off was Civilization Revolution 2, which was developed and released exclusively for mobile platforms in 2014 before being ported to the PlayStation Vita in 2016.

Mainline Civilization games are very important to Firaxis Games and will be supported for many years. In November, a new DLC for the game was launched with the “Leader Pass”, which provides players with new leader characters every month until March 2023. For this reason, it makes the most sense that the developer will be eyeing a new mainline game to take over shortly after Civilization VI is fully completed.
