Title: Some Maxis Devs are leaving to start a new studio!
Post by: sgore on July 18, 2013, 11:17:02 am
This seemed relevant enough to deserve it's own thread:

On the plus side, I'm interested to see what they'll do away from EA's current set-up.
Though they seem to be only focusing on mobile games now, so I'm not sure how I feel about that yet.

Still, at least one of them's been there since the Sim City 2000/Sim Copter days, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.

At least it's more than building motorized recliners in a garage somewhere.

I mean considering those were the people directly responsible for SimCitys design, which was terrible, then I have no faith in what they will produce.

Don't be so quick to write them off.
