SimCity Crashes Down 92% Since Launch

SimCity developer Maxis has ensured fans that the game’s issues are almost completely under control now.

“I had hoped to issue an ‘all-clear’ tonight, but there are still some elements coming together,” said Maxis general manager Lucy Bradshaw. “Tonight and tomorrow we’ll be monitoring each server and gameplay metrics to ensure that the service remains strong and game is playing great. We need a few more days of data before we can assure you that the problem is completely solved and the game is running at 100 percent.”

“The good news is that tens of thousands of new players are streaming into the game every day and the confidence our fans have shown is truly humbling,” she added. “I can’t begin to explain the way a development team feels when something you’re proud of is threatened at launch. Our biggest fear was that people who love this franchise would be scared off by bad reviews about the connectivity issues.”

So it appears that the worst is behind the game now, but there are still several kinks that need working out over the next few weeks.
