SimCity “pre-vis” trailer suggests 2013 release

A pre-visualisation trailer for the next SimCity title has appeared online, suggesting a 2013 release date.

The video shows various different images of the supposed game but no actual motion as these “pre-vis” trailers are often used as storyboards for the actual trailer. The omission of the number 5 from the title suggests the game could be a possible reboot.

SimCity rumours were sparked last month after EA PR boss Erik Reynold tweeted: “MORE INFO! EA Maxis GDC announcement, huge event w/ special guests”.

A follow up message on Facebook suggested the announcement could be SimCity related. “How can we change the world together? Find out when EA hosts the Game Changers event at GDC. What would you do if you had the power to change the world?”

Luckily,we only have to wait a day to find out the full story, as EA and Maxis’ GDC event takes place this Tuesday.
