We heard rumors the game was in development. EA finally unveiled the next SimCity tonight during a GDC event.

10 years since the last game, EA will release its newest SimCity title for PC and Mac in 2013. The game uses a new, fully 3D Simulation Engine. Adding a social element, players can affect their friends' cities directly. EA says decisions you make building your city can make change elements of nearby cities.
