Firaxis working on unannounced strategy title, Civilization Revolution II canned

Firaxis staffers have outed a new, multi-platform RTS from the Civilization developer, but it’s not a sequel to Civilization Revolution – that’s been shelved.

Apparently going for a hat trick, Superannuation found this one, too. Former Firaxis level engineer turned Vigil senior designer Chris Doyle makes a mysterious reference on his resumé to a “unannounced Unreal Engine 3 title (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) – in development”.

Meanwhile, the resumé of character artist David Jones mentions his work on Civilization Revolution II, which continued “until the project was canceled”.

Civlization Revolution would otherwise be a hot contender for a console-bound RTS from the studio, as it released on DS, iDevice PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Super’s past sleuthing skills turned up an unannounced sci-fi game in the works at Firaxis, although that could be a reference to a long-rumoured (and probably long-vanished) turn-based XCOM sequel.

    I enjoyed Civ:Rev more than I did Civ 5 to be honest. This is a bit of a disappointment.

    Up until they recently fixed Civ V with a few quality patches, i also liked Civ Rev more. But even though I am rounded a few hundred hours on Civ V now, I would have jumped at Civ Rev II. It offered a quick and easy way to play MP that Civ V simply doesn’t have.

    Plus its on a console.

    It will be missed :(

    To be honest, just splitting the attack and defense stats worked so amazingly well. Really improved the combat loads. Civ 5 is also very combat heavy, but I wanted it to have more options outside of combat, which they mostly did away with.
