Civ MMO coming....not being made by Firaxis...
It's apparently being made by XLGames.
Who knows? For all we know, they may actually get the multiplayer right
I really hope it's not the same guys that blew the CitiesXL MMO launch. That one crashed and burned pretty fast.

Yes the Archeage MMO looks well on it's way. And they certainly can't do worse than the train wreck that Civ5 MP is. I do have a concern about their ability to mesh the strengths of an MMO with the strategic depth of a TBS game, and not to mention the classic "just on more turn" syndrome that is iconic of the Civ franchise.

well, noone is buying civ5 DLC anymore and Civ world is crap and they aint working on multiplayer in Civ5 so might aswell start a new project to flog the brand in some way
When I first saw the topic and link to Archeage site I was little bit confused. What has this game to do with MMORPG.
Well, can't say I'm too excited about the idea but I'm not against it. Time will tell what will come out of this.
