Everyone's familiar with Maxis, the studio behind most Sim titles such as SimCity or The Sims. Well, as of today, after 28 years on the gaming market, Maxis is no more. While the brand itself lives on, the studio is to be consolidated with other EA development studios. This is what an EA representative had to say:
An understandable decision after the SimCity fiasco and the underwhelming launch of The Sims 4, but nevertheless, it's always sad to see industry titans such as Maxis go."Today we are consolidating Maxis IP development to our studios in Redwood Shores, Salt Lake City, Helsinki and Melbourne locations as we close our Emeryville location"
