Computer Games Online has posted a report stating that SimsVille, another of Maxis' extensive line of "sim" games, has been cancelled. While this game did not have a promised Mac version, the odds of "Sim" games coming to the Mac OS have been substantially improved as of late as Aspyr Media publishes Maxis titles one after the other. Thus some of us might be disappointed that this title, which proposed to combine the people-watching of The Sims with the city management of Sim City 3000, has fallen to the executioner's blade.
Here's an excerpt from the report:
Maxis announced today that Simsville has been canceled. The latest in their popular Sim line of games, it was scheduled for release in 2002. It wasn't up to the standards of Maxis, according to a spokesperson for Maxis, who also stated that despite this, the team did a great job and is being reassigned to other products like The Sims Online and other future projects.The SimsVille web site has also been closed. At least we can look forward to The Sims: Hot Date, due this Holiday season.
