"Sid Meier's Civilization II (Civ II or Civ 2) is a turn-based strategy computer game designed by Brian Reynolds, Douglas Caspian-Kaufman and Jeff Briggs. Although it is a sequel to Sid Meier's Civilization, neither Sid Meier nor Bruce Shelley were involved in its development. Civilization II was first released in 1996 for the PC and later ported to the Sony PlayStation.
In 2002 Atari re-released the game for newer operating systems, such as Windows Me and Windows XP.
The Multiplayer Gold Edition was included in the Civilization Chronicles box set released in 2006."
