The game is over. Studios will shift their production to online gaming.
I don't think it is that simple. They've sold their game, but at the cost of huge damage to their franchise. I don't think Simcity 6 will be half as successful, particularly if it follows the online model.

Online gaming for single player games needs a very compelling case to appeal to consumers. In a number of examples recently (Simcity, Diablo 3, Command and Conquer 4, perhaps TOR although that is nominally an MMO) the underlying game is simply not good enough to offset the pain of playing online.

PS I own none of these games for this reason.
