2K will announce a “new franchise” this month, and it’s likely from the developers of Civilization.

2K Games will have a new franchise to announce in August, and the game will launch on March 31, 2022. Parent company Take-Two revealed this during today’s financial earnings report, and the timeline matches what we expected. by Firaxis. the studio behind Civilization and modern XCOM games.

“Later this month, 2K will reveal the details of another exciting new franchise that is planned to launch during this fiscal year,” said Take-Two President Karl Slatoff during the quarterly results report. The company’s fiscal year ends on March 31, 2022, so this new game would launch sometime by then. (The Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands release date was also confirmed for this window as part of today’s call.)

This new franchise is not confirmed as a Firaxis game, but there are good reasons to suspect that it will be the next thing from the Civ developers. We already know that Firaxis has “several” games to announce this year, and the studio titles have been released. historically under the 2K label. Civilization’s 30th anniversary is approaching in September, but of course a new Civ wouldn’t count as a “new franchise.”

That’s what we know officially, but unofficially it’s been reported that the next Firaxis game will be an XCOM-style Avengers game. That rumor started circulating before E3 and was quickly corroborated by some reliable sources, but the great fair came and went without any official confirmation.

For now, check out some strategy games to whet your appetite for this mysterious ad.
