Coming in 2013.

Multiplayer?

Non-Linear Roads?

I'll admit, I'd like writing a giant message in roads and building cities across it.

I loved SimCity 4 so much.

I hope that this is as good or better.

I loved making wars between a Soviet Union-esque country and an America-esque country

They went into neo-weapon stage very often (The disasters, but with different names, like Meteor->MOAB, Robot Attack->STS-234 Gravedigger Mech)

I can't wait. I love Sim City. Hopefully people were severely beaten after Societies and have learned their lesson.

Das kann doch nicht sein!
Maxis developer Lucy Bradshaw has apparently confirmed to German gaming magazine Game Star that SimCity 5 will be arriving in 2013.
Seems a bit shaky to me. I find it odd that they tell it a German magazine first. Then again, I found Gamestar always trustworthy and quite "high-level", compared with other magazines (maybe a bit too much). On the other hand, that was several years ago and things changed since then, I don't know how Gamestar nowadays is.

But if that's true and it's really called "Sim City 5", then Societies is apparently officially just a spin-off. That, at least, is good.
People aren't as awful as the internet makes them out to be.

Why would it matter if it was a spin-off or not? What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and a crappy game by any other name is just as bad regardless.

The franchise isn't dead? GLORIOUS DAY! I just hope it can live up to Sim City 4

Societies was many things, but a Sim City game it was not.

It was fun. But it wasn't really Sim city.

Since you can link sims from your Sims game into Sim City 4 games, I'd like it if you could link in Sims 2 and Sims 3 sims into the city.

And even link a sim city sim into Sims 3.

^ It'd be really nice if they did something like they did with SimCity 2000, which allowed the user to input their cities into games like Sim Copter or Streets Of Sim City.

For a while I've wanted a Sims game that can link up to a SimCity game, such that your Sims can visit areas in your city, work there, interact there, etc. Maybe even influence the growth of the city in SimCity by becoming an important person and making city management decisions on a more down-to-earth level than the main SimCity games' omniscient mayor viewpoint.

Like for example, becoming a major player in a company and making a deal as a Sim which brings certain kinds of business to the city in SimCity - something the mayor in SimCity can do on their own (you don't want to make the two games reliant on each other, after all, just able to be linked together), but which would require something else - sort of like how in SimCity 4 you could unlock buildings and kinds of development options the old fashioned way, or simply complete the relevant mission.

WOW, it looks almost like one of those miniature models that engineers build to show off during executive meetings! And the light vigil on the bridge as well as the city skyline at night is impressive. Are they planning to release a video soon?
