EA Maxis’ Lucy Bradshaw announced at the EA E3 2012 press conference today that the upcoming SimCity would be launching in February next year, along with its glorious multiplayer components, so don't spend all of your Christmas money in January. In fact, just see if you can get your folks to do the present thing in March, that'd be way easier.
Needless to say, there was absolutely no talk of the controversial internet requirement, just a breezy trailer that has made us want the game more...if that was even possible.
Bradshaw also confirmed the existence of SimCity Social, which will be bringing the SimCity experience to Facebook with the tagline "More City, Less Ville". I'm not ashamed to say that I'll probably play the shit out of it.
There are trailers for both below...
