Computer and Video Games has gathered together the latest information about Electronic Arts' upcoming addition to the Sim City franchise. Currently under the title Sim City Societies rather than Sim City 5, the new game will be be less focused on realistically simulating urban environments than previous games. In another departure from earlier titles the game will be developed by Tilted Mill Entertainment rather than Maxis.

Responding to the debate, Tilted Mill President & Director of Development Chris Beatrice posted an official statement:

"...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," he said. "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."

"I do want to say, though (with no insult intended to die hard SC fans)," he adds, "that we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this venerable series, are extremely proud of what we have put together, and make no apologies about what we have managed to create. And while our past experiences (including contributions from many of you) certainly inform all our ongoing efforts, this SC is its own unique creation."

Well, from what I got on other game sites, die-hard SC fans already hate the game. Which is pretty understandable, since a game called "Sim City" that doesn't focus on an realistic urban simulation isn't SimCity anymore.

They should probably just call it something else.  The only one I've played is Sim City 2, but I logged a fair few hours on that and would be annoyed if I got another and it wasn't about building a city....

Gotta love that quote - 'Please understand that this SC has little, if anything, to do with what one would probably consider SC to be, as it does not, in fact, simulate a city. We're just being real upfront with that, because frankly, we don't care. We still think it'll be nifty though!'
