People are still wanting SimCity to not be an always-online title, and it looks like this might just happen now, after all this time. A post over on the SimCity blog by General Manager of Maxis, Patrick Buechner hints at this.

Buechner said that Maxis now has "a team specifically focused on exploring the possibility of an offline mode." Maxis can't guarantee if the offline mode will ever appear to consumers, but the developer finally sees that some gamers do want to visit their cities without being on the Internet, and it would also see a huge spike of use in the modding community.
