Civilization Revolution Postponed on Wii

The Wii version of Firaxis Games' Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution has been delayed indefinitely, according to publisher 2K Games.

"Development for the Wii version of Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is currently on hold," 2K Games told IGN. "We are focusing our attention on creating the best possible Civilization experience for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS platforms."

The first Civilization game built exclusively for consoles, Revolution is said to be the first Sid Meier-designed Civilization title since the original Sid Meier's Civilization (PC).

The hold up comes as little surprise, given that the Wii version was already slated to hit much later than the other versions. At the time of our E3 preview, the turn-based strategy game was expected to arrive on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo DS in the spring, with the now-uncertain Wii release trailing in the fall.

    Please, please, please let the DS be the primary development platform!

      handheld Civ has been a lifelong dream of mine. Just imagine, no longer chained to your desk for "just one more turn..." but being able to take it with you anywhere. I just hope things don't end up scaled down or diluted gameplay-wise.

        Gameplay is identical across all platforms, including DS.

        The only difference is the interface.

        CivRev DS is the game you've been waiting for. Trust me. I can't stop playing it. :)

            it seriously is 100% the same gameplay.

            it's amazing.

            and you can just close the DS and then open it like an hour later and look, you're still attacking Washington with the armies of Gandhi!

          I hope you can see this; I'm doing it as hard as I can.
