Two Sid Meier Games Coming To Windows Phone

By Dog of Thunder,
When we covered the announcement of a new batch of windows phone titles arriving this year, we had no idea that perhaps the biggest news would arrive this week. A classic game designed by the legendary Sid Meier will be getting ported to the Windows Phone later this year courtesy of 2k Games: Sid Meier's Pirates!

In Sid Meier's Pirates! players will have access to 267 fully customizable ships as they seek out buried treasure and combat other players in this portable version of the PC classic.

Another classic Sid Meier franchise is getting the mobile treatment as Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution will be conquering Windows Phones later this year. A streamlined version of the traditional Civilization titles, Civilization Revolution will feature 16 playable civilizations and feature gameplay as close to the console version as possible on a Windows Phone.

We have no firm release date or price points to share with you at this time, but when we know when to expect these surefire hits, we will pass along the information.

Thanks to all the community members that alerted us to these titles.
