SimCity August Release Too Late?
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 10 comments

Mac Gamer HQ recently posted a new editorial about the delayed Mac release of Electronic Arts' SimCity. EA recently announced the game would finally make its way to Apple computers on August 29.

EA and Maxis pretty much screwed everything up when they released SimCity for PC on March 5th, 2013: Full of bugs, server outages, the worst DRM ever seen and more. We talked about it then and hoped they would learn from their mistakes.

Obviously, they didnít. Not only was SimCity for Mac delayed 2 times, but feedback to Mac gamers has been practically inexistent. Twitter user @GamingWoes and myself (among many others) have been harrasing EA and Maxis for months to get some information. The Result? nothing, most of the times complete silence. Talk about bad PR.

We all know how it works. Projects, products and launches get delayed, thatís life, I get it. However, delaying the game close to 3 times and not saying anything to your customers while still taking their money (enticing Mac gamers to pre-order the game)? Now thatís not right.
