SimCity Gets Official Release Date

Splines To Be Reticulated Once Again From March

Quick update for you all. A press release from EA has revealed that the next iteration of SimCity will be releasing on March 8th in Europe. The news was also confirmed via the game’s official Twitter account, meaning that although the game has slipped from the originally planned February release date, we now know that we have just over 5 months to go before the city building series returns to PC.

In his recent hands-on preview, Matt stated that Maxis have “stepped things up with this reboot,” describing the overall package as “ambitious and attractive.” You can read his impressions on SimCity by hitting the link here.

Probably a good idea delaying it from February to avoid competing with the Beast Of America. Smart move, we'll be good and hungry for it in March.

I can't really see the two being in that much contention for the same player base. Considering one is a first person action game and the other is a management sim.

@sebtiger: I'd usually agree with you 100%, but BioShock Infinite is a very different beast to your standard run & gun shooter - both in terms of mechanics, hype and audience. Like the original BioShock, it's set to be an inclusive game (catering for action junkies, more tactical types, the art crowd and everyone in between) and the most anticipated game of 2013 to boot.

I know I speak for the entire team when I say that we're very excited about both - and I'm not surprised that a few games are staying clear of its launch window.

Agreed - I think most folk are looking forward to both, immensely. Doesn't matter that they're completely different genres. People want quality, and historically both titles have had plenty...
