Maxis is no more

EA has closed Maxis Emeryville, the folks behind SimCity. Kotaku reported on the tweet sent by Guillaume Pierre, who’s been with Maxis for 12 years.

The Sims series is handled by another studio, so supposedly that’s OK even though reports are that The Sims 4 didn’t do so well. 

But, it’s really sad to hear this sort of news. I grew up with games like SimCity and SimAnt to name a few. To hear this once great studio is shutting down is really disheartening. I wish everyone at Maxis Emeryville the best of luck in finding something new.  You guys will be missed.
