Farewell, Maxis…

Leave a comment

Just like Disney did to LucasArts, Electronic Arts shut down Maxis, the creators of several games that had a name with “Sim” in it (SimAnt, SimEarth, Sim City and The Sims, to name a few) and Spore and Darkspore. Electronic Arts has told people that they will continue with The Sims and Sim City franchises (like they could ever afford not to continue those), but Maxis’ offices in Emeryville had their offices shut a couple of weeks ago.

Rest in peace, Maxis, and thanks for the entertainment.
