As the disastrous SimCity launch lurches towards the end of the week, it feels like it's been one catastrophe after another.
SimCity is now listed as "Currently Unavailable: We don't know when or if this item will be available again." Yowch. The Amazon description continues:
Important Note on "SimCity"
Many customers are having issues connecting to the "SimCity" servers. EA is actively working to resolve these issues, but at this time we do not know when the issue will be fixed. Please visit https://help.ea.com/en/simcity/simcity for more information.
While Amazon's page doesn't explicitly say that it has put the game on hold due to the server issues (it's possible, for example, that EA asked it to halt sales to limit new users, or that it has simply run out of codes), it certainly looks as though that's the case. I've reached out to both Amazon and EA for clarification, and to find out under what circumstances Amazon will begin to sell digital copies of the game again.
