‘SimCity’ For Mac Set For August 29th Release Date, Says EA



Originally planned as a June 11 release, Sim City is now going to release on August 29, 2013, according to a tweet today from EA’s official SimCity Twitter account.

Joining another hotly-anticipated game release for the Mac, Bioshock Infinite, SimCity will hopefully be ready for prime time and not delayed again.

SimCity came out on the PC-only to face some criticism over many bugs and overloaded servers, making it difficult to play the game early after release. Hopefully the extra time spent on the Mac version will allow the game to go live without any hiccups. It also seems as if the Mac release will be available for PC players who want to grab the Mac version, at no extra charge, as noted in the following Twitter exchange.


It looks like you can currently pre-order SimCity for Mac for $49.99 at the MacGameStore as well.
