has built sales of over 2 million units, according to EA Labels President Frank Gibeau. In a recent interview with VentureBeat
, Gibeau noted the biggest takeaway the company took from the game's disastrous
launch was how lucky it was SimCity
has such loyal fans. Preach!
"Since then, we've sold more than 2 million units, and the number of people logging in and playing is holding steady," said Gibeau. "SimCity
is a success. However, underestimating demand
in the first month was a major miss. We hope that the game and the service we've provided
since then meets the fans' high standards."
Several leads from the SimCity
project have moved on to start their own studio, Jellygrade
. SimCity's latest upgrades include $9 airships
and $10 amusement park sets
