Unfortunately, TM can't do anything about it now; they may have developed but EA holds the rights. Really no one can and have any suggestion that its part of the Simcity series or use any SC derived terms like "Sim" for a character, and TM probably couldn't even use "Societies" as a title for fear of being sued for "implying" (accurately) that is was connected to SCS. Its all very unfortunate. The only thing that could be done would be for someone (TM? Someone else?) to develop something new that advance a similar "social engineering" concept.
I've actually started trying to develop a game on my own inspired by SCS, in much the same way the Minecraft is inspired by InfiniMiner but a totally different game or that CitiesXL, City Life, LinCity, and the whole city-simulation genera is inspired by the Simcity series. I have my own ideas I've been turning over for years of how the social engineering genera should advance (not at all in the way City Life does it) and bud away from the city simulator genera per se. Unfortunately, this is probably a fools hope, and I have my own doubts as to if I can even come close to pulling it off. It occurs to me that I'm trying to play software engineer without really being formally trained in programming and not that skilled at coding, and this is causing a lot of headaches, unhealthily late nights, and confusion over thing that may be the result of small silly errors I don't think of -- not to mention making attempt to code my idea unduly slow. And unfortunately I don't think anyone else will pick up my memetics based idea. Don't hold your breath for it.

i think that maxis must develop a new Simcity 5 with gameplay of Simcity 4 and 3d graphics.
That is exactly what Maxis should have done -- SC2000 / SC3000 / SC4 with high-res 3D graphics and a highly positonable camera. Unfortunately they didn't. But they have their problems, notably EA for bosses.
