Take-Two takes over Civilization

Civilization

Following their announcement of the acquisition of Visual Concepts and the formation of the new 2K Games publishing label, Take-Two has announced that it’s made a blockbuster, multi-million dollar publishing deal with Fireaxis to be the publisher of Sid Meier’s Civilization 4 and potentially other titles in the future. Sid Meier’s Civilization 4 is now the first confirmed released under the 2K Games publishing label. The deal is long-term, meaning that at least every Civilization title coming out will be slapped with a 2K Games logo on it. Fireaxis should be very pleased with the new partnership, as Take-Two is an industry leader that has a dedication to PC games unlike any other. Good things are in the future for Sid Meier, that’s for sure. Look for Sid Meier’s Civilization 4 late this year.
