Creator of epic god sim says online multiplayer may be his next move

Head of Firaxis Games Sid Meier has said that he finds the prospect of a Civilization MMO ‘really intriguing’ – and hinted that it may soon become a reality.

Speaking to readers of GameDaily.biz, Civilization creator Meier also hinted that a game from the series could come to the Wii in the near future.

He was speaking after the announcement of a new Civilization title – a PC remake of 1994’s Colonization, this time under the Civilization IV banner.

Meier said:

“I'm exploring lots of exciting ideas right now. A Civ MMO is a really intriguing idea and we're spending time thinking about how we could make it the fun addictive experience Civ players expect. Beyond that I have some new ideas that are quite different from games I've made in the past – and that's all I'm able to tell you right now.”
