Maxis Says SimCity Problems Are ‘Almost Behind Us’

If you are an avid SimCity fan then we have some good news for you.

According to Maxis’s General Manager Lucy Bradshaw the SimCity server problems are ‘almost behind us.’

She made this statement in a lengthy post on the official SimCity blog yesterday. In fact, she was hoping to give the ‘all clear’ signal last night. However, there are some issue still being resolved and it will take a few more days before the game starts ‘running at 100%.’

Besides that, she also deeply thanked the fans for having confidence in the developers while they worked to fix the problems as soon as possible.

Here is an extract from her post:

I’m happy to report that the core problem with getting in and having a great SimCity experience is almost behind us.
I had hoped to issue an “All-Clear” tonight, but there are still some elements coming together.. We need a few more days of data before we can assure you that the problem is completely solved and the game is running at 100 percent.
Our biggest fear was that people who love this franchise would be scared off by bad reviews about the connectivity issues.
But you put your faith in us. You bought the game with the understanding that we’d quickly fix the server issues. For that support – that incredible commitment from our fans — we are deeply grateful.

Let’s just hope this matter is resolved quickly. I have got a funny feeling that no one would be more relieved than EA itself when all this is settled. You can read the full post here.
