There is no doubt that the Civilization series is one of the top-rated games of Take-Two. Its 6th part debuted six years ago and still has a strong fanbase. Due to recent leaks, the game is back in trending. Which brings us to the most searched question on the web; what is the official release date of Civilization 7? To find out, continue reading the article!
Firaxis has not revealed any major information about the franchise in quite some time. So, the fandom is quite literally surviving on crumbs. Last year the developer posted a job posting in which Firaxis was looking for people to recruit who has a rich knowledge of world history. The fans were quick to connect the dots and conclude that this was for Civilization’s 7th installment. However, they never confirmed this officially. But this speculation makes sense to a certain extent because the characters of Civilization are all derived from ancient civilizations.
Civilization 7: When will the game officially launch?
For now, Firaxis has remained tight-lipped about the development of the game. Hence there is no release date for it either. As they haven’t given out any estimations either, we can’t predict exactly when the 7th installment will be available for the players. However, some insiders have speculated and here is what their views are.
First of all, we would like to clarify the news that Civilization 7 is not going to launch in December 2022. All sources backing this information are fake! Another project of Firaxis, Midnight Suns, is coming out on 2nd December. The source must have confused the two!
Firaxis is currently working on a mainstream project concerning the Marvels. It is the Midnight suns. And the sources close to the developer revealed that they had delayed the production of Midnight Suns until the last quarter of 2022. So, this means that as the team is already occupied, we are not getting the 7th installment of Civilization in 2022. Who knows, we might get it somewhere in 2023!
Of course, other than the busy schedule of Firaxis, we can also put the blame on Covid-19 as the pandemic’s restrictions disturbed a lot of development for several games. So is it true that the same happened with Civilization’s 7th part? Only Firaxis can answer this question!
In these six years since the 6th game in the series debuted, we have received some sort of content here and there. Hence we are hopeful that in the near future, the developers will launch something for gamers. If we observe the trend between the release dates of the previous installments. We have noticed that a new game launches every 5 to 6 years. So, does this mean that Civilization 7 is just around the corner? Well, it could possibly mean that!
Even if the production for the game begins in December (as Midnight Suns come out this month), the game could easily take 1 to 2 years its development. Hence, it is better not to keep any high hopes from Firaxis. Rest assured, we will try to add to this site in case of any new leads regarding the matter. So, don’t forget to bookmark this page!
Due to the lack of updates on the matter, we are running low on information. So, for now, that was everything you needed to know about Civilization 7’s release date. Got more queries? Feel free to drop them in the comments below!
