Maxis To Have No Role in EA’s SimCity 5

According to Computerandvideogames.com, the original developer behind the previous titles in the immensely popular SimCity series of games is not involved in its fifth iteration.

SimCity Societies, to be published by Electronic Arts, is instead being developed by the makers of Caesar IV, Tilted Mill Entertainment.

In response to fans’ complaints aired on the studio’s forums in a thread titled “You killed Sim City!” Tilted Mill Enertainment President Chris Beatrice issued a rejoinder, which read in part:

I hope you do try it, and I really hope that you do not pass judgment based on the title or some preliminary speculation on some web site.

However, I do not want to mislead anyone: This SC is not a realistic urban simulation, which I understand, to many, represents the heart of what SC is. No one is blind to that. And if you’re just completely turned off, even angered by the mere notion of any game called “SimCity” that is not a detailed, realistic urban simulator, I absolutely understand that viewpoint, and absolutely respect it.
