    Also spotted in Steam Database

    Release date: February 19, 2013

    It seems like 2K Games sells out previous Civ5 content before One World expansion announcement...

    Now this is interesting and perhaps the most promising sign so far that there is indeed a second expansion on the cards...

    "sells out" ? It's usually downloaded right? No stock to sell out, so to speak :)

    Good chance that the expansion will be announced around that time as well.

    Well, I think this means that the next expansion will not come before October.

    It seems unlikely that they would release a golden edition and just a couple of months after new content. Although, its a good sign that One World is a real probability.

    Apparently, Civilization 4 Gold Edition was released on July 17, 2007 and Beyond the Sword on July 23, 2007. So who knows we may get it pretty soon after the Gold Edition as well.

    No, you are wrong
    The Gold Edition and the new One World expansion are not competing with each other
    Quite the opposite, they are strengthening each other. Probably producing more sales (for both of them) if released on a close date
    If the Gold Edition really comes in February 19, who knows... we might get One World in March :)
    A little more realistic tip would be late April or early May though

    I don't want to repeat myself, but the new expansion is pretty sure, for more than 2 weeks now
    Check the link in my previous post

    Indeed.
    First off it rehypes Civ 5 again a bit, putting it back in the spotlights and secondly it gives people that don't have Civ 5 yet to get level with the current players to create an equal playing/buying field.

    But it also does create the question if G&K is a prerequisite to OW, something that wouldn't surprise me.
    A mention in the Steam database doesn't mean it's 100% sure, there are mentions of games in there for months, even years, that have never been released.
    Don't worry, Civ 5, the DLC and the expansion is on sale so very often that you can pick up the rest of the missing bits for a good price anyway.

    As I said in this thread, based on previous patterns an expansion is pretty sure to be announced in February, most likely the 14th or 21st. As the 14th is valentines day, there was always a good chance that the 21st was more likely and this being released on the 19th, I think we can pencil the 21st in for the announcement of One World.

    That's kind of odd - it's been out longer than G+K, so why omit it from the collection? Perhaps Firaxis plans to add Sumeria and/or the Hittites in the (as of yet unconfirmed) next expansion, and they plan to retroactively update the WotAW scenario?

    ...or it's just an excuse by 2k to squeeze more money out of their customers. :mischief:

    That is a very good point. There is no good reason not to put it into Gold unless they have plans to do something with it in "One World".

    Huh, it could very well be the case as when Isabella was included, so maybe the 3 wonders + the scenario will become part of One World? Now I'm hoping they'll at least give a discount for the next DLC for those who HAVE the DLC already.

    But my Steam shows it includes Ancient Wonders DLC (13 stuff including vanilla & G&K) & saves $59.38

    Ah yes. I see it now as well. It must've been an oversight.
