SimCity Release Date Pushed Back to March 2013

EA's SimCity reboot, from the various gameplay trailers that the publisher's so far released, looks to be shaping up to something pretty good. The impressive multiplayer, which seems to be social game done right, and the mere fact that it's a SimCity game is probably enough to ensure success.

Unfortunately, all good things usually tend to come later rather than earlier, which is still significantly better than never at all. EA's announced that SimCity's launch window has been pushed back a month to March 2013, avoiding a packed February of Dead Space 3, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance, and BioShock Infinite for an equally packed March consisting of the South Park: The Stick of Truth, the Tomb Raider reboot, God of War: Ascension, Gears of War: Judgment, and Pikmin 3.

Delays are an expected part of development, especially for large releases like SimCity. Hopefully, Maxis and EA will put those extra few weeks to good use and we'll get a better polished product.

SimCity will be releasing on both Windows and Mac on the new projected release date of March 8th. Here's to hoping that there aren't further delays.

    Just push it back to 3013. This game eats more time than is worth it. You start at 9pm .. look at clock 5am?!? How the?? Got to leave for work. Need sleep. It needs a warning.
