Don't get me wrong i love the series. But when Civ 3 was released and i didn't like it, i kept playing CTP2. Now that Civ 5 is a dud Take2/Firaxis could use a kick in the behind if there only were some competition. Now that the field is wide open the time would be ripe for a third installment of CTP. We need a good Civ game and Take2/Firaxis don't seem to care anymore. And why should they? We keep on buying anyway. Maybe somebody else will step up to the plate.
