Update 2: And now it's official. You can download CivRev 2 Plus on Vita for $19.99 right here.

Update 1: Or perhaps we'll be waiting a little longer. The tweet from the official Civilization account that prompted this story has been deleted.

Hope is not lost, though. The PlayStation Blog's weekly release post, The Drop, indicates the game is coming this week. We'll update again when it actually becomes available.

Original Story:

Today marks a second stealthy Firaxis release on Vita this month. Civilization Revolution 2 Plus, which was delayed multiple times, is finally available on Sony's handheld.

It joins XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which snuck onto the PlayStation Store last week. Civilization Revolution 2 Plus is a port of the 2014 mobile game.

The Vita version includes a number of Japanese leaders. Civilization Revolution is designed to be more accessible with faster play times than the original Civ series. You can read our review of the original release for more.

Our Take
These stealthy releases don't inspire much confidence. We know that developing for the Vita can be challenging, especially when porting. Hopefully, this is a good solution for getting your world domination fix on the go.
