There was very little doubt that SimCity’s nothing short of disastrous launch would do little to stop EA’s drive to refresh beloved IP. After all, the chilly reception SimCity enjoyed had more to do with harebrained DRM schemes, questionable PR efforts and an overwhelmed server infrastructure than the quality of the game itself.
Despite the massive user backlash, SimCity ended up earning a more than respectable amount, making a further dive into Maxis’s back catalogue of IP an inevitability. The only bit of information EA let slip is the game’s expected 2014 ship date, though if the launch will bear any resemblance to that of SimCity, it will probably be more entertaining than the game itself.
