2K Games has announced it will release Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 for Android, but a specific release date and price has yet to be revealed.
Despite the title, Civilization Revolution 2 will in fact be the first game in the long running turn-based strategy series that is being developed from the ground up specifically for mobile devices. The original Civilization Revolution was released for game consoles first in 2008 before being ported to iOS in 2009 and Windows Phone in 2012. However, 2K Games did not release that game for Google's mobile OS. Therefore, the launch of Civilization Revolution 2 will in fact be the first game in the series to be released for Android devices.
Developed by Firaxis Games, Civilization Revolution 2 will feature a user interface created for touchscreen devices. 2K Games added:
Staying true to the series, Civilization Revolution 2 will allow players to lead a civilization from the dawn of man to the modern age, and go head-to-head with history's most intrepid leaders as they wage war, conduct diplomacy, discover new technologies, and build the most powerful empire the world has ever known in a race for ultimate supremacy.
The game will have all of the 16 historical leaders that players encountered in the first Civilization Revolution, such as Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Napoleon. It will also let players interact with some new famous figures such as Winston Churchill and John F. Kennedy. 2K Games has yet to announce any specific hardware or OS requirements for the Android version.
