Sid Meier Interviewed

Eurogamer has posted an interview with Sid Meier, Firaxis founder and creator of the Civilization series. The interview covers a broad range of topics including Firaxis' recent merger with Take Two Interactive, upcoming projects for the company, and discussion of the recently released Civilization IV.

From the interview:

"No," he says when we suggest Civilization as a franchise may have just about run its course. "At the moment we're happy to put it aside for a while and let people play it, and all the stuff we could think of went into the game [Civ IV], but history shows that it may come back again. It's been 15 years, so it's not like we bring it out every year or two, but we wait an appreciable amount of time. I don't know. Who knows what the world's going to look like in a few years? But the idea's rich enough, I think, to sustain any number of games."

Fans will be glad to hear that. And Meier really is a fan's man.

"Our fans are so vocal and enthusiastic that it would crush them if we didn't bring out another one," he says. "Soren was talking this morning to a representative of Civ Fanatics, and it's amazing the people that have latched onto this game as defining their lives. It would be unfair and cruel not to do another game if they really want one."

Aspyr Media is currently working on a Mac version of Civilization IV which should be released sometime next year. To read the entire interview click on the following link.
