Civilization VII officially revealed

UPDATE: As predicted the game was revealed at Summer Games Fest with a cinematic trailer. It is coming to PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Switch at the same time sometime next year.

It’s that time of the year when marketing departments hold their heads and cry because Jimmy from the web team pressed a button a bit early. In this case our Jimmy looks after the 2K Games website and he put up a banner advertising the unannounced Civilization VII.

Our guess would be that the game will be revealed tonight as part of the Summer Games Fest.

It has been quite a while since the last Civ, as Civilization VI was released on PC way back in 2016. It was subsequently ported to Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and even mobile devices. We gave the Switch version 9/10 in our review.

“The Switch version is just the base game, but that’s more than OK,” said Nick. “There’s plenty to sink your teeth into, providing hours upon hours of unique experiences, accompanied by a divine soundtrack to really get you in the mood for building nations.”

Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games fest kicks off tonight, June 7th, and ahead of the show he took to Twitch for a Q & A session, during which he tempered expectations for the show. “There will be, definitely, new announcements,” he said, “but the show is largely focused on, I think, existing games that have new updates for fans.”

“There definitely are things that are being announced but this is not a show that has a lot of like ‘coming in 2026’ or ‘2027’, or teasers for games that are years and years out… That’s generally what I would say in terms of expectation setting.”

Metaphor: Refantazio and Monster Hunter Wilds are confirmed, along with indie games made “single devs”. Also in the show will be Kingdom Come 2: Deliverance and a trailer for some “cool DLC.”.  Batman: Arkham VR from Camoflaj is also confirmed along with Dragon Ball Sparking ZERO and a trailer for the Among Us animated show.
