What happened to http://www.civ4.com/ ? It used to send people to Firaxis's little multimedia Civ4 pages. Now it's just a solitary stub page. Is this a basic web site management screw up, or the beginning of their expansion announcement?

Anyone care?

Actually I think the official domain was always civiv.com. Not sure if civ4.com was ever owned by firaxis/2kgames.
