SimCity dev releasing 'social title' soon

Side project coming from Maxis by the end of July

EA's SimCity developer Maxis should certainly have its hands full with work on its next big simCity game now pinned for an early 2013 release.


But that's not all it's working on. EA has said that the developer has got a "social title" in the making, and it's "scheduled for release this quarter".

That puts it anytime between now and the end of July. The publisher offered no insight into the nature of the release.

EA was recently spotted filing a trademark for a mysterious 'SimOcean', fueling speculation that we could soon see a new Sim game that takes players into the aquatic depths Earth's blue bits.

Could that have something to do with it?
