There are rumors on developing New SimCity 6. The game series may have hard times because Maxis Emeryville which produced the game was closed. It might have stopped the whole series but Electronic Arts still has plans for this game. That is why some specialists who worked on SimCity along with the new ones promise to bring the series back to life.
The Release Date of SimCity 6
The new SimCity 6 is planned to be released in the first quarter of 2018.
Release date: the first quarter of 2018
The upcoming game will not have a story line according to SimCity traditions. You will be a mayor once again who directs and controls the life of the city. The developers promise that they will take into account comments and experience connected with the previous parts to make the new one better.
Maybe we should expect Sim City 7 release date instead? Or SimCity 2018 – no one knows, it could be one more spin-off of the series.

We don’t see a proper city building sim since the classic SimCity series, but sometimes miracles are happen – Cities: Skylines wins hearts of buyers after its release last year. It reminds SimCity 4 with a new graphics and load of cool features. It shows that EA games really lost itself in SimCity series, make it just another easy ride for housewives and teenage girls, just like The Sims. It’s a pity game series with almost a 28 years of history lose almost everything we loved in it.
I hope the devs will watch and learn – make the game great, like in the past.
SimCity 6 System Requirements
Even though there are a lot of rumors about this game being a cross platformer, it is far from being truth. So SimCity 6 PC requirements are the following.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4000+ / Intel Core 2 DuoProcessor 2.0 GhZ
Graphics Card: ATI X1800 / Nvidia 7800
RAM: 2 Gb
In fact, this is SimCity 6 minimum requirements and you can expect recomended ones closer to the release date.
New Features and Gameplay Changes
First of all, SimCity 6 will improve the graphics to make the game more realistic. The player will have new opportunities to create the cities. The cities will become larger. Their size will be close to the size of typical map from SimCity 4. Single player mode as well as multiplayer are going to get much more new and unexpected missions. Moreover, the game will not use DRM and will not require constant access to the Internet.
For those of you who are not familiar with this series, the game has no particular characters. You are the mayor who takes the care of the city and its numerous citizens.
The new game is going to offer you maps of enormous size which will lead to system requirements being much higher.What is more such approach will entail the use of the new engine since existing GlassBox will not be able to meet the demands of the developers. The sixth part is promised to become wider allowing you to place roads and buildings in a way more liberal. The zones for building may be also modified giving you knew opportunities. The elements of the city may be connected by different means. So we may expect anything else but roads, waterways and subways.
SimCity 6 is rather a promising release which offers you bigger and more beautiful world with wider opportunities. However, will it be appropriate for a typical PC or you will need to have a really strong machine to play this game? This is the first question which fans are worried about. Moreover, will the new team of developers be able to save the existing SimCity atmosphere or we are going to play a completely new series? Is the SimCity 7 is going to be released after? It is the rhetorical question.
