Single-player version of SimCity 'rejected'

Electronics Arts has said plans to turn SimCity into a single-player game were rejected early in the development of the latest version.

The admission comes as players are finding ways to get round the game's need to be constantly connected.

Lucy Bradshaw, head of SimCity creator Maxis, said an offline, single-player mode did not fit with its "vision" for the urban-planning game.

She said many players preferred the multiplayer version of the game. (EA, PC, SimCity)
