As compensation for the inconvenience of Electronic Arts, it offered all Simcity customers a free game. This was announced on the company’s blog by Maxis General Manager Lucy Bradshaw. From March 18, Origin users will begin to send letters with instructions for receiving a gift. «We are ashamed for what happened», — wrote Lucy. «We hope that you will not hold evil on us, and we will make friends again when Simcity will work 100%».
