Take 2 Games acquires Civilization franchise

Take 2 Interactive Software announced that it has purchased the Civilization game franchise from FIRAXIS. Civilization IV will be released in late 2005 with 3D graphics and support for XML and Python user-created add-ons.

I have spent many days over the years playing Civilization and its expansion packs. I’m looking forward to being able to code for the next version and bringing the Irish closer to virtual world domaination!
