GM of Maxis Emeryville Patrick Buechner revealed the news on the SimCity blog explaining that they were in the late phases of work on and that "Our priority is to make sure that it’s as polished as possible before we release it."

Modding is a big part of our studio’s legacy and we’re excited to see what you guys create.”
