SimCity And Spore Developer Maxis Has Been Shut Down

4 March 2015 4:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Electronic Arts has announced that they are closing down long-time SimCity developer Maxis, but the name will still be used for future titles by EA.

News of the closure was originally revealed by former Maxis designer Guillaume Pierre, who took to Twitter to announce the news. Following the breaking of the story, EA issued an official statement:

Today we are consolidating Maxis IP development to our studios in Redwood Shores, Salt Lake City, Helsinki and Melbourne locations as we close our Emeryville location. Maxis continues to support and develop new experiences for current Sims and SimCity players, while expanding our franchises to new platforms and developing new cross-platform IP.

These changes do not impact our plans for The Sims. Players will continue to see rich new experiences in The Sims 4, with our first expansion pack coming soon along with a full slate of additional updates and content in the pipeline. »

- Eric Hall
