Take Two subsidiary 2K Games has announced that a new addition to the Sid Meier's Civilization series will be released this autumn.
Civilization IV: Colonization will be released on PC for Games for Windows and is currently in development at long-term Civ studio Firaxis Games.
The title is based on the original Colonization, released back in 1994, with 2K Games describing the title as a ‘complete re-imagining'. The new title does not require the original Civilization IV to run.
We've received many requests from fans over the years to bring back Colonization and now seemed to be the perfect time to do that,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games.
The Civilization IV engine provided a fantastic foundation for a new Colonization experience and allowed us to create something great for both new players and long time fans of the game.”
In Colonization, players lead one of four European nations on a quest to conquer and rule the New World.
