New Console Based Civilization Game Hinted At in Fireaxis Games Job Listing

Since 1996, developer Fireaxis Games have produced numerous award winning titles from the great mind of Sid Meier, notably the Civilization franchise. Civilization, has always had a home on the PC, but back in 2008 the franchise made a terrific debut on current generation consoles with Civilization Revolution. Since then, the series has returned to the PC, but with Fireaxis now hiring for console talent, could we once again see Civilization come to consoles? (Civilization Revolution 2, Fireaxis Games, PS3, Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution, Xbox 360)

Suck it PC gamers!

Hope it's true.
More people get a chance to play a game that I love... what's not to like there?
Theo1130  +   1484d ago
why suck it, I love Civ V, and I hope other people get to play it. If it wasn't for what they learned from Civ Rev on consoles, they wouldn't have learned what they learn for Civ V. And it's not like they're compromising the pc version for the console tards...

really? if you compare Civ4 to its console version Civ Revolution its so dumbed down that I'm not sure what you mean by suck it.
MostJadedGamer  +   1484d ago
By suck it PC gamers he means Civ Rev cut a lot of the boring, and tedious parts out of Civ 4.

Civ 4 was a complete mess. It was like a steak with 95% fat on it.
Ducky  +   1484d ago
^ is that... sarcasm?

Civ4 is arguably the best in the series.
Especially with BTS.

Edit: Seeing as you've just copy/pasted that same comment, I suppose you're just another troll.

Revolution was actually a lot of fun on console. The PC version did have more options, but I did not miss them while playing on 360. I actually would never have played the PC version if I had not played it on 360. And, I only played it on 360 because it was downloadable.

Great game! I spent many nights playing online with my brothers. Was dissapointed when the developer refused to consider the console port for Civil V. But, in the end, there is just too much loot sitting on the table, to just ignore.

Screw this and just give us a new Alpha Centuri, the greatest civ game of all time.

Love Civilization!

I really liked Civilization Revolution, and would pick up another version on console day one.

I have played Civilization 5 to death, and Im ready for another Revolution. (Maybe with K&M Support, and maybe even Move Support on PS3)

I'm normally a strategy games type of guy, but man I just could never get into these. I tried the demo for the last one on PS3, and it was just... bleh.
doctorstrange  +   1484d ago
Civ PC
Is way better than Civ Rev, they dumbed it down too much for my liking.
BigWoopMagazine  +   1484d ago
That might explain it. I also hated the stupid character voices - I remember that quite vividly.
MostJadedGamer  +   1484d ago
No they cut most of the boring, tedious parts out of the PC civs.

More is not always better. They have put so much junk, and useless garbage in the PC Civs that it is like a steak with 95% fat.
Lou-Cipher  +   1484d ago
It was dumbed down alot, but it was still a great knock off of the PC Civ's
decimalator  +   1484d ago
I love Civ games, though I miss the old school ones.
SquareEnixFan  +   1484d ago
I hope this is a new Civilization for consoles. I love the Civilization series.
Trroy  +   1484d ago
No! Firaxis is making another Civ game? Unbelievable! =)

Hopefully it will have pit boss built in, and MP on consoles will rock.
Lamarthedancer  +   1484d ago
I hope they don't dumb it down again.

I mean I love Revolution but after a while you realised most of the stuff from the PC version wasn't in it.

Yea it seems like they took a lot out. I still loved it though. I wish it had all the units they had in 4. I hope this is true.
MostJadedGamer  +   1484d ago
That is a good thing. The PC versions have become so bogged down with useless junk, and garbage that it is almost impossible to get any fun out of them.

The PC version are in desperate need of being streamlined, and trimming all the fat off them.
BeaArthur  +   1484d ago
Loved revolution, this would be great news.
Raoh  +   1484d ago
good news.
Pumbli  +   1484d ago
I really liked CivRev, hope they take the more complicated route this time around. Maybe more Civs to play as... More Civs on the map... More complicated diplomacy... Ah, I hope this is true.
MostJadedGamer  +   1484d ago
Yea I did have several major problems with Civ Rev which I hope they fix with Civ Rev 2.

1. There must be more then 5 Civs in a game(You and 4 other Civs.) That is just to few for a epic game. Really we should be allow to choose how many Civs to play with. If we want to play a game with all 16 civs then we should be able to do that.

2. I love how they streamlined a lot of the stuff in the game, but I want them to streamline it a lot further. Military, and exploration needs to be streamlined a lot more.

All exploration needs to be done automatically(without you moving the units), and military we should be able to issue broad strategic orders, and our units move autmatically to carry out the strategy. I also want smart AI governors that automatically control your cities, and will follow a board strategi polciy that you lay out.

Yes I want a Civ where you basically only made the broad strategic decisions, and the AI does all the micromangaement. That is my dream Civ

3. I agree about diplomacy. We need more options. The dimplomacy was pretty bare.
M_Adkins  +   1484d ago
I loved Revolution, still play it to this day. I hope I get another console Civ to enjoy.
DanSolo  +   1484d ago
Just last week I got Civ 4 for PC and played the shit out of it.... it is definately a good game, but I think it is a shame that they dumb console versions down a bit, I played the Civ Revolution demo on my PS3 and you can tell the difference... still it is really good to actually have some decent strategy games coming to console.

Hopefully they will start releasing the full versions of games like this on console, as to be honest I don't really bother gaming on my PC anymore and prefer to do it on my PS3.... but the PC still does have the the better RTS and RPG's.

I'd like to see the Total War series come to console as well.
MostJadedGamer  +   1484d ago
You are missing the whole point DanSolo. We dont want those tedious, boring PC versions on our consoles.

Civ Rev cut a ton of fat, and useless garbage out of Civ 4. Civ 4 was a complete mess that was 95% useless fat.

I hope Civ 2 will continue to streamline the franchise.

My dream Civ wouild be one where you only make the broad strategic decisions, and the AI carries out all the micromangemanet, and tactical decisions for you. Basically you would be playing a as a REAL Ruler would.
DanSolo  +   1483d ago
lol but that does type of take alot of the point out of the game....

It would make ALOT more sense if you had a decision slider or something..... so you can change the level of micromanagement so that someone like you can have it switched to completely AI, the hardcore types can have it switched to completely manual, and someone like Me can have it switched somewhere in the middle so that I can leave out some of the tedious bits while still tweaking my Burgeoning Empire to my liking....

That way everyone's a winner!

Remember they are not just making the game for you, they are trying to appeal to all types of gamer!
