Civilization 7 (VII) Release Date, Game Tips & Strategy Guide
Word on the Street (or more, accurately, on the Web) is that Civ 7 will be released the Friday of this upcoming (2021) Memorial Day weekend, though that word can only be found on one page of one site which could’ve been written by anyone.
By all means, my fellow Civilization fans keep me posted with updates in the Comments section below. Thanks!
For what it’s worth, a release date sometime in 2021 for an update of Civ 6 would make sense. Three out of the five new Civilization releases have been five years after the last edition of the game, and five years after 2016 puts a five-year development trajectory squarely in 2021. Also, two major expansion packs have followed every edition of the Civilization franchise since Civilization II, so, with the release in recent years of Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm, it’s inevitable that a completely new edition of the game is just around the corner (or so we hope with a very educated guess).
