SimCity for Mac was initially going to be released on June 11th, but EA announced that they were delaying the release as the game wasn’t ready for primetime. It said that the launch would take place in August. Earlier this month EA finally announced the confirmed release date of SimCity for Mac, August 29th. The game has indeed been released today and is now available from the Origin store.
