No. Civ 4 wont be dead, either.

Beyond Earth isn't Civ 6, it's not a replacement, it'll be fairly different.

By law you will be required to forfeit your copy of Civ V on Steam. It happens all the time. New video game comes out, renders the previous installments of the franchise null.
PC + Nintendo 3DS + Nintendo Wii U. Nothing else comes even close.

Is anybody even playing Civ games MP?

No, Beyond Earth doesn't have enough content to drive too many people away from IV/V.

No, I don't think it will die. I still play Civilization III and Civilization IV almost every week, and the message boards are still filled with active posters and new topics everyday concerning the older Civilization games, so you know people still play older Civilization titles even after all these years and new releases.

Apparently a sizeable portion of civ players like it for the history aspect (although civ does an extraordinarily bad job of doing this), so some are holding off on BE for just that reason.

Plus you'll get the people who'll be waiting for it to go on sale, to get expansions, or for the complete version to come out.

Still others think it's just a glorified mod of civ v

But yeah, Civ V will still have a large player base.

All the Civ games have big followings, even when newer sequels come out. Not everyone likes sci-fi themes either so won't be buying Beyond Earth. I'm definitely getting it though, just not at launch. Don't have the funds.

I'm also waiting too, but not really in any hurry to buy it because of the inevitable DLC and expansions that are going to come with the game.

I'm excited for Beyond Earth, but if you're a fan of this series you know the game is basically going to release incomplete.

There will be a minimum of two expansions.
