Despite its troubled launch and ultimately poor critical reception, SimCity sold more than 2 million copies since its March release.
This figure was revealed in a Venturebeat interview with EA labels president Frank Gibeau who called the much derided game "a success."
"We've sold more than 2 million units, and the number of people logging in and playing is holding steady," said Gibeau. "SimCity is a success."
