Things You May Have Heard That Are Not True

June 21st, 2007 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Blogs, Industry

A couple of pieces of EA news have had the gaming forums in a bit of a tizzy lately. Let’s clarify a few things.

1. SimCity 5 is not being made by Tilted Mill. They are making a new game in the SimCity series and, it seems, will try to be as accessible as the original SimCity was. But SimCity: Societies is not SimCity 5. (This month’s GFW has a photo-filled preview from Ryan Scott that outlines what is different and why.)

2. Spore is not definitely delayed until 2009. It is moved to Fiscal Year 2009 – which starts in spring 2008. (The date in a FY refers to when it ends, not when it begins.) It was widely assumed that Spore would be a 2008 title in any case, so this “announcement” is not really news.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled gaming freakout.
