Sim City sizes could be expanded after release

by William Schwartz


Sim City is due out next week  for PC and some have already taken offense to the new game for not allowing those with stronger computers to build bigger cities.  While Maxis has already clarified that it’s a performance issue, they may be planning to let players build bigger worlds after the game has launched.

In a recent interview with Inc Gamers, Maxis’ Ocean Quigley alluded to these post-launch plans for the city building simulation game.

“Sim City is a mainstream game, it’s not a game that is only going to run on high-end gaming PCs, it has to run in your Dad’s PC as well,” Quigley stated.   At some point in the future, especially with mainstream computers become more capable, we could certainly make the city sizes larger… We’ll eventually get around to expanding the city size but I can’t make any promises as to when.”

This week’s return of Sim City ends a long hiatus for the franchise.   This reboot looks to be a true generational leap for the franchise, one that sees a number of new changes being added to the traditional Sim City formula.

Sim City will be available on Origin on March 5th.
