Civilization Facebook "relatively soon"

Take-Two has 2011 release planned.

That networked version of Civilization that Sid Meier has been labouring over - it'll be out next year.

Things had blown cold on the project until interim Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick mentioned a 2011 release date during a BMO Capital Markets conference watched by Joystiq. Zelnick went on to say we'd see the game "relatively soon".

The Sid Meier's Civilization Network page on Facebook links to the article and and tells us to watch that space for more information.

Creator Sid Meier told the world he was playing a prototype version of the game in March this year. However, his preferred way of working this time is painstaking iteration to make sure his giant social Civilization dream is "refined" and balanced.

Is Sid Meier going to dethrone FarmVille?

Civilization V was released this year. This is what it looks like.
