Some Maxis Devs are leaving to start a new studio!

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.


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

At least it's more than building motorized recliners in a garage somewhere.
Probably not a Goat, either.

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.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Don't be so quick to write them off.
