Founded in 1996, Firaxis Games is a world renowned game development studio with an unwavering mission to "build games that stand the test of time". Named after an orchestral work composed by company founder and President Jeff Briggs, "Firaxis" is a fusion of "fiery" and "axis", communicating the company's dynamic process of game development and creation of visionary products. Under the creative direction of industry giant Sid Meier, Firaxis has released twelve "triple-A" products in ten years and is recognized as a global industry leader.
Firaxis recently released one of the most anticipated games of the millennium, Sid Meiers Civlization IV for PC.

Firaxis has created many blockbuster titles, including; Sid Meier's Civilization IV, Sid Meier's Pirates (PC and Xbox), Sid Meier's Civilization III Series, Sid Meier's SimGolf, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Sid Meier's Gettysburg!, and most recently, Sid Meier's Railroads! The titles have sold millions of copies worldwide and garnered over 100 industry awards.

A company is only as good as the people who manage it: Firaxis leadership has received numerous awards for innovation and industry service. Sid Meier, Firaxis' Director of Creative Development, has received virtually all of the industry's top awards. In addition, Sid has recently been inducted into the Computer Museum of America Hall of Fame and the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame for lifetime achievement in computer gaming. Steve Martin, President, was honored by Baltimore Business Journal in 2004 as one of the top young executives.

Firaxis is recognized industry-wide for a progressive culture that supports the emergence of new talent. Central to this success is an "iterative" design process (in which all team-members contribute to the game's design) honed by Sid Meier while at MicroProse Software in 1990.

In 2005, Firaxis was acquired by Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., joining the 2K Games publishing label, a wholly owned subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive. Under the creative direction of resident genius Sid Meier, Firaxis will continue to deliver award winning gameplay experiences to players around the world, on both the PC and console platforms.
