In a recent interview with newly appointed General Manager of Maxis Neil Young talks about The Sims 2, the new console game URBZ: Sims in the City and Will’s new project. But also most importantly for us what lies in the future of the SimCity franchise. A short excerpt:
GameSpy: We can’t forget SimCity. Did SimCity 4 meet expectations? Are any more expansions planned?
Neil Young: SimCity 4 was a big hit for us and was a top seller on the PC charts in 2003. We also released SimCity 4 Rush Hour in 2003, our first expansion pack for the SimCity franchise. In addition, we shipped SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition in 2003, which included both SimCity 4 and Rush Hour.
The part about SimCity can be found on page three of the interview.
