EA recently announced that SimCity will launch on Mac on August 29. Originally scheduled for a June 11 release, it was delayed in order to "ensure it's a great experience".

In late July, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said the game had overcome its nightmare launch to surpass two million sales. "In retrospect, our biggest takeaway is that we are lucky that SimCity has an enormous number of loyal fans," he said. "That first week after launch was really rough - an experience nobody wants to live through again.

"We've sold more than two million units, and the number of people logging in and playing is holding steady. SimCity is a success. However, underestimating demand in the first month was a major miss. We hope that the game and the service we've provided since then meets the fans' high standards."
