Maxis GDC event ignites SimCity rumours

Could EA Maxis be thinking of a new SimCity instalment? It's a tenuous hope at best. EA has announced that Maxis will be a part of their Game Changer event at GDC, held March 6th.

Of the Maxis event they tease a "huge event w/ special guests." The Facebook for Game Changer asks what would you do if you had the "power to change the world?"

Maxis are known for the love affair with simulation based gameplay, with their pedigree including SimCity, The Sims and more recently Spore. What surprises lurk at EA Game Changers?

Certainly building a city can 'change the world' especially if you throw in a multiplayer component. Perhaps Spore might get another look in but this time be more focused on the impact of evolution on worlds? Of course they could always just announce a brand new IP. Maybe we'd get lucky and Maxis decided to give Populous a bash...

Would you kill for some new SimCity from the Maxis team? Let's not repeat the Societies fiasco.
