One more ‘just one more turn’

The next game in the Civilization turn-based strategy game franchise is coming in 2025. At Summer Game Fest on Friday, developer Firaxis and publisher 2K Games announced Sid Meier’s Civilization 7 with a big, history-spanning trailer.

Sid Meier’s Civilization 7 is confirmed for release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, and promises to empower players “to build the greatest empire the world has ever known.” Gameplay details beyond that are scant, but Firaxis promises a full reveal of Civilization 7 in August.

It’s been more than seven years since the last game in the series, Sid Meier’s Civilization 6, was released for Mac and Windows PC. Since then, Civ 6 has expanded greatly, with six civilization and scenario packs, and ports to Android, iOS, Linux, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The Civilization series dates back to 1991, with the original MS-DOS release produced and designed by Sid Meier and Bruce Shelley. The series has sold more than 51 million units worldwide since then, according to 2K.
