Amazon have withdrawn sales of the digital download version of SimCity, as the game’s server problems continue ahead of the UK launch tomorrow. Meanwhile, it’s faced a vast and vocal consumer backlash, with customer reviews sitting on one star.
It’s not clear if this has been a request of EA’s or if the sheer number of refunds made Amazon take action, but it’s clear that customers are not enjoying the product they paid for.
As you can see above, Amazon stated the following:
“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.”
There is currently no ETA on when digital downloads will be made available again. Customers can still buy physical copies of the game.
