Alpha Centauri sequel on the way?

EA has registered trademarks based around Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, a popular strategy game from 1999, Eurogamer reports.

NeoGAF users spotted the registrations, which are based on both an online service and computer game software. If that means there’s a sequel in store, it would be the first we’ve seen on the series since its Firaxis-developed debut all those years ago.

Would you want a Firaxis sequel? Should EA just leave the franchise alone? Have you ever even heard of it before?
