EA may announce a new SimCity game at the Game Developers Conference next month according to rumors spurred by the publisher’s announcement of a live-streamed event on March 6, where they promise a new Maxis game will be revealed. A related post on Facebook posed the question, “How can we change the world together? Find out when EA hosts the Game Changers event at GDC. What would you do if you had the power to change the world?”
When paired with descriptions of the game lifted from Maxis job ads looking for, “a highly talented and experienced team on an upcoming triple-A simulation style game,” the evidence seems to point to a SimCity announcement of some kind coming from the event next week. That same job ad also states that the developer is looking for someone with, “knowledge of the Xbox 360 and PS3 rendering architectures and APIs,” suggesting that the title will appear on consoles. No American developer has ever produced a console or otherwise “simplified” SimCity game that was actually playable or enjoyable.
