EA’s “SimCity” has been suffering from major server issues since the title saw release on Tuesday, March 6. However, on Thursday, March 7, Amazon.com stopped selling the product from their online store.
As we reported yesterday, Electronic Arts temporarily shut down the servers for “SimCity” in order to address connectivity issues and to update the game to increase server stability – full story can be read here.
Despite updating several of the game’s servers, players are still experiencing connection problems and this has forced Amazon to no longer offer the title for digital purchase.
Amazon cites that the reason why “SimCity” isn’t available is due to customers experiencing issues with the “SimCity” servers. The company acknowledges EA is working to fix these problems, but no fix date has been revealed at the current time.
Below, you can find Amazon’s full statement on why “SimCity” isn’t available for digital purchase:
“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.”
EA is making effort to fix the servers, but as to when these issues will be resolved has yet to be determined.
