Report: SimCity Social hitting Facebook
Posted: 09.05.2012 18:42 by Comments: 1
It seems that Electronic Arts is attempting to repeat the success of The Sims Social by bringing SimCity to Facebook as well with SimCity Social.

Electronic Arts has registered several domains including SimCitySocial.com, SimCity-Social.com and SimCityFacebook.com, while creating a currently unpublished SimCity Social Facebook page.

This follows an announcement by CEO John Riccitiello today on CNN Mad Money that EA would be announcing something in a month (which not-so-coincidentally coincides with E3) that a major social game would be hitting Facebook that he promises will be "all over the news."

The Sims Social is one of Electronic Arts most profitable properties, surpassing FarmVille in Facebook active users.

Electronic Arts will also be releasing a new AAA-scale SimCity title in 2013.

Just a personal opinion: I actually am looking forward to this. The Sims Social is nice, but SimCity Social makes more sense, especially considering the online mechanics of SimCity 2013. It'll be a nice warmup.
