SimCity release date set for Q1 2013

Maxis' next big game pinned for an early 2013 launch

EA has until today been rather vague surrounding the launch date for its new SimCity game.


But the publisher has now confirmed its launch for 'Q4 fiscal year 2013', which puts it down for launch any time from January to March 2013 on a normal person's calendar.

That tightens up the ETA from the previously announced '2013' launch.

EA and Maxis announced the new SimCity at GDC in March this year. The game is driven by Maxis' new engine, GlassBox, which it says "powers each simulation with real integrity in order to capture the world we live in today".
