What are you talking about? Who cares what the name is it practically is Alpha Centauri.

So, it takes place on only a single world? That seems fairly limiting for a colonization strategy title.

Seems... different. Probably taking it from the Civ 5 Science victory. The SS rocket has taken off and landed on another planet... or I guess that's how they'll tie in. Just hope they fix some issues that Civ 5 had that didn't get addressed. Random AI being one of them, especially AI that is bound to rules instead of ones that could just break gold and happiness rules because they were coded badly.

I get the impression every game will be different. Different world. DIfferent faction strategies. Etc..

This write up is a bit more in depth:

The devs apparently noted that they didn't want to mark this as Alpha Centauri specifically because they're approaching this title in a new manner, not attempting to make it into a direct sequel of games from their past.

So really it's the same thing we saw with Thief, Deus Ex, etc, where an old idea is being brought into the new market, but without the tacked on addition of the IP. Considering how horribly that went for Thief, I'm not sure I can blame them. Do they have the option of simply remaking the old title for a new engine? Yeah, but if they want to make something new, may as well see how it goes. Firaxis tends to release good stuff, may as well see what they have to offer with this new idea.

It worked well for Deus Ex though Thing is Alpha Centauri was very much unforgiving, i feel like unless you get a space Ghandi with super thermo nukes, Civ B.E should be awesome, plus it's literally just taking Civ and putting into space, it cannot go wrong surely...
