...Electronic Arts has confirmed the former lead designer of Civilization IV has quit his gig at Firaxis. Johnson has now returned to his old digs at Electronic Arts' Maxis studio and is working on the much-anticipated evolution-to-civilization sim Spore.
Spore's Civilization Phase is therefore directly tuned up by the lead dev of Civ4. Could they now hire Steve Barcia or Ken Burd for the Space Phase? Pleeeeeaaaase!
