SimCity Mac: Not Ready, Delayed Again
Once upon a time, SimCity Mac and PC were to ship on the same date. Then there was a delay, but the PC version slipped out in March and EA promised the rest of us a June 11 release. Scratch that. Sim City Mac has now been pushed back until August.
Hi, Mayors – today we are announcing that we are moving the release date of the Mac version of SimCity to August. We have made this tough decision because we do not believe it is ready for primetime yet. We want to ensure the Mac is a great experience for our players and that is why we are taking more time — Electronic Arts.
Yes, it is better that EA holds SimCity Mac until it is ready. Nevertheless, the delay is disappointing.
When this long and hotly anticipated game finally does ship, SimCity Mac buyers will get both the Mac and PC versions. Interestingly, existing PC buyers will also be able download the Mac version for free when available.
