EA reveals Simpsons Facebook game

Social SimCity under construction as well.

EA is developing a Facebook game based on The Simpsons. It's due to go live this September.

A social version of settlement building simulation SimCity is also on the way, and will appear on Facebook at a later date.

Both games are likely in development by EA-bought social gaming studio Playfish, according to MCV. Playfish archrival Zynga already launched SimCity-clone CityVille on Facebook - the two franchises will now go head to head.

What will The Simpsons Facebook game be like? A Springfield-themed FarmVille? Mafia Wars featuring Fat Tony? EA is keeping schtum.

Nearly four years have passed The Simpsons Game earned 6/10 on Eurogamer. Above average.

But before that there were darker times. Simpsons fans endured the GTA-inspired The Simpsons Hit & Run, Crazy Taxi clone The Simpsons Road Rage and Tony Hawk-alike The Simpsons Skateboarding.

The Simpsons Game.
