Soren Johnson will oversee the design of all games coming from the studio, which previously produced Galactic Civilizations, Elemental, and Fallen Enchantress.

Few games in the strategy sphere are as universally adored as Civilization IV. Even now, many players still cling to that earlier entry even after the release of the excellent Civilization V. That’s why the news of Soren Johnson’s move over to Stardock should be welcome news for strategy fans. In a post to the Stardock forums, studio head Brad Wardell says that Johnson’s impact will be apparent in Stardock games that come out in 2014-2016.
