Legendary game designer Sid Meier (Civilization, Pirates!, Alpha Centauri
) mentioned the prospect of a Civilization
) when fielding user-submitted questions at GameDaily.
In fact, he mentioned it twice.First
he was asked about the Civ
MMO specifically. "A Civ
MMO is a really intriguing idea," he said. "We're spending time thinking about how we could make it the fun, addictive experience Civ
players expect." Later
in the Q&A, a fan asked where Meier sees Civilization
evolving in the future. He again suggested that he's interested in making an MMO.
How would it work? Would it be like those browser-based strategy games
in which players only get a few moves a day? Would everyone co-exist in one enormous map? We'd be fascinated to hear what Meier and friends are planning. Unfortunately, we'll probably be waiting a while. He didn't confirm that the MMO will be his next project. He's mulling over a couple of other ideas as well. Here's to hoping, though!
