Firaxis announces new direction at PAX East

We knew Firaxis would be announcing a new game at their panel this morning at PAX East, and now we know what the team has been working on. Civilization: Beyond Earth is taking the series past future tech and into space exploration.

Though Firaxis does not own the rights to the similarly themed Alpha Centauri, and therefore cannot develop a strict successor to it, lead designer David McDonogh said during the panel that Beyond Earth would appeal to fans of that spacefaring strategy game.
