Maxis: SimCity a "relaunch of the franchise", not SimCity 5

Maxis vice-president Brett Barry has told VG247 that SimCity is a fully-loaded relaunch of the series rather than a fifth game in the franchise.

Barry was speaking to video editor Sam Clay at the EA European Showcase in London earlier this week, where the game was showcased. Behind the scenes chatter pointed to it looking 'very hot' at the event.

Get Sam's chat with Barry above, where it touches upon on the game's new GlassBox engine, politics within the game and more.

SimCity launches in 2013 for PC.
