Maxis announced on their official blog they changed the release date for the Mac version of SimCity from June 11th to some time in August of 2013. Senior Producer Kip Katsarelis states, “We have made this tough decision because we do not believe it is ready for primetime yet. We want to ensure the Mac is a great experience for our players and that is why we are taking more time.”
With the PC version of SimCity being labeled “the worst game launch in gaming history”, Maxis is being extra careful with the Mac release. Better safe that sorry, we say. Take your time, Maxis!
And Kip’s final words for Mac users,
One final note for our Mac fans: As a sincere thank you for patiently waiting to play, we are going to extend the availability of the SimCity Launch Park (released in Update 4) to all players who have purchased the Mac version. Now you, too, can launch a Llama balloon. Because who wouldn’t want to do that? Thanks again for your patience and understanding. See you in August
