      Sid was throwing around some hints in one of the gaming conventions or maybe at last year's E3. There are some old threads in the Community Forum on this.

        Do you have any links, Urban?

        I for one would hope for SMAC2, but I understand that isn't the most probable.

          I'd say X-COM. I don't know, it just smells like X-COM.
          I watched you fall. I think I pushed.

              Well, I did a search of these forums, and here is what I found:

              http://www.gamespy.com/articles/augu...er/index.shtml

              An interview with Sid at GenCon...

              On the second page it says:

              Sid Meier: Yes, we're looking at some of the older games and seeing what might look good.

              GameSpy: Would that include your old stuff? Like Pirates, F-15 Strike Eagle, Gunship…

              Sid Meier: … Silent Service, Red Storm Rising, Covert Ops. And we're looking at the other games as well.

              GameSpy: Like Master of Magic and X-Com?

              Sid Meier: Yes.

              GameSpy: You realize Usenet is going to go nuts over that answer.

              Sid Meier: We're not going to announce our next game until October or so.
              I don't really think that is a sufficient identification of Sid's intent to do X-COM. Though now I can actually see him doing it, as opposed to before, when I thought such a thing would be impossible.

              Another thing:


              Sid Meier, in an recent CGMagazine interview, expressed interest about redoing XCom or Master of Magic... and made some cryptic remarks about Pirates!, whilst some petitioned him to make a sequel to Antietam!


              Posted by DarkCloud. I searched for more on that on the net, but there doesn't seem to be any more info... Well, that's about it.

                And just after I posted, DanQ throws the news afrticle out at us. Check it out:

                http://apolyton.net/civ3/

                But real world events has Briggs thinking about updating the Civilization series. Among the features: An increased role for the media and a more true-to-life world governing body. In this more realistic setting “Civilization’s” United Nations component would be less kumbaya, more realpolitik. More powerful members would have the power to veto or go off and wage unilateral action.


                Could they be thinking of yet another Civ game?

                  seems like a great Xpack-better un, modern age using current events as a basis. And tack on a decent scenario editor. That would make back the money, and be good all around

                      Sid Meier: Yes
                      Wow! I've never tried those games, but from what I hear, they are among the best PC games ever right next to Civ series. I just hope that Firaxis would not mess up like they did with Civ3. Anywany, thank you for the information vovansim!

                        I've seen screenshots of the new X-Com game so speculation over folks.

                        No, really, there is a new X-Com game in development, but I can't tell you if Sid and/or Firaxis are involved. I'd personally not bet against it though. MoM2 would rock though - but only if they simply do a paint job, and increase the size of stacks = bigger battles.

                          MoM2 is the holy grail of computer gaming. And much like with the original, I predict it will never be found.

                            Actually there are (were?) two X-com GAmes in the Making.
                            I saw one over at Gamespy in the Developers Diary section cant remember the name though
                            My Guess is more on Pirates but we'll see.

                              If you are talking about the one that is covered in great detail by Gamespy, then no. Neither Sid nor Firaxis are involved in that. And plus, it has been announced a loooong time ago. Called UFO: Aftermath. Developed by some unknown (to me at least) Czech team.

                                Pirates.
