Earlier today, Amazon posted an "important note" on its SimCity product page, writing, "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." Amazon pointed customer to EA support for updates.
The PC download version of SimCity is listed as currently unavailable. "We don't know when or if this item will be available again," reads Amazon's product page.
It appears the retail version is also no longer being fulfilled directly by Amazon. Third-party vendors, like J&R Music and Computer World and GameCyberStore, still list the game in stock through Amazon. A downloadable version of SimCity is still currently available through retailers like Gamestop, Green Man Gaming and EA's own Origin service.
Earlier today, the game's developer disabled SimCity's fastest game speed as part of its efforts to stabilize the game's required online connectivity.
Polygon has contacted Amazon through its PR and customer service departments, but the company has not yet responded to requests for comment.
