Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is a 2008 iteration of Civilization developed by Firaxis Games with Sid Meier as designer for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Windows Phone, and iOS. A Wii version was originally expected but was put on indefinite hold. The lack of a PlayStation Portable version was attributed to a lack of development manpower.
Sid Meier was enthusiastic about this installment, being quoted in both the press release and trailer as saying: "This is the game I've always wanted to make."
A demo was released on Xbox Live Marketplace and the North American PlayStation Store on June 5, 2008. The demo allows players to play until 1250 AD on a fixed map as Cleopatra or Julius Caesar, and also allows multiplayer play. A similar demo (Civilization Revolution Lite) was released for iOS that allows play until the "Modern Era" as Julius Caesar, Abraham Lincoln, or Genghis Khan. It is also available on Xbox Live Marketplace as a digital download. For two weeks in March 2014, the Xbox 360 version of game was available as a free download for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
A sequel, Civilization Revolution 2, was released on July 2, 2014. The original game was removed from the iOS App Store on September 1, 2016.
