Why No PC Civilization Revolution

Take-Two: New ‘Civilization’ Will ‘Never’ Come To PC on MTV Multiplayer offers reasons from 2K Games why Civilization Revolution will not be coming to PCs. The article points out the game was actually prototyped on the PC, but it was designed as a console game and they would not want to cause confusion for PC gamers expecting this to be Civilization V. In a neat aside, the 2K producer quoted is Blue's News alumnus Jason Bergman.

I agree, it is sort of nice to see them taking stock of the different expectations. I'd rather not have another SimCity Societies-like disappointment.

EA gets 2K and thats just what we will probably get.

I can't see where any of the hardcore console crowd would ever even be interested in a real Civ game. WTF are they making? If it's not Civ call if fucking something else.

Um, they did? In fact, that was what the whole news item was about - how they're calling it something else because it isn't a classic Civ game. It is a spinoff.

Yeah, the PC is brimming with excellent turn-based strategy, and it looks like it'll stay that way.

There are better TB titles than Civ that get much less press attention.

Companies understands that you can release much lower quality software for a console and people will like it, and more importantly, buy it.

No one thinks you are cool because you are a elitist prick you know.

Wasn't Carcassonne a big hit on Live Arcade? I don't see why Civilization wouldn't be.

And besides what is "the hardcore console crowd" ?

Thought the whole point was that they are "casual" gamers.

So is this Sid Meir's "Civilization" or not? I'm confused here. Because, you know, Civ has always and really only should be a PC game. I can't see where any of the hardcore console crowd would ever even be interested in a real Civ game. WTF are they making? If it's not Civ call if fucking something else.

Finally, a cross-platform dev with a brain! If they developed the game for consoles and released it on PC, it would have been suicide for the Civ series on PC

It's also terribly depressing though. Companies understands that you can release much lower quality software for a console and people will like it, and more importantly, buy it.

I'll bet this is a good game, but for the money, I'd get Civ IV definitely.

It's nice to see that the developers recognize the different standards between PC and console gamers.
