2K had an impressive 2014, and though much of that can be attributed to Grand Theft Auto V, Civilization: Beyond Earth also served an important title for 2K.

Though specific sales numbers for Beyond Earth were not revealed, 2K says that it has shipped more than 29 million copies of games in the Civilization franchise. Up next for Sid Meier is Starships, coming to PC and iPad spring of this year. That title will feature some cross-connectivity with Beyond Earth.

Our Take
Only a few years ago the strategy genre seemed to be waning, but 2K is showing a lot of faith in Sid Meier and his strategy titles.
