2K has announced that industry veteran and Firaxis Games Chief Operating Officer, Heather Hazen, has been promoted to Studio Head, ushering in a new era of development at the studio behind Sid Meier’s Civilization, XCOM, and, most recently, Marvel's Midnight Suns. As part of that announcement, Firaxis confirmed that it is currently developing a new mainline Civilization title, continuing the popular series of turn-based strategy games beyond Civilization VI that allows players to build and lead various civilizations that range from ancient times to the modern era. Ed Beach will continue in his role as Creative Director for the new Civilization game, while two veterans, Jake Solomon (former Creative Director of the XCOM franchise and Marvel's Midnight Suns) and Steve Martin (former Studio Head) will be departing Firaxis after over two decades at the studio.
