Looking back in time at the moment when The Sims 4 was released, we remember that Grant Rodiek, the senior producer on the game, mentioned that we should expect The Sims 5 only in case the current game was not a success. We know now that the game is enjoying enormous popularity amongst its fans, so should we hope for a new version anytime soon? Obviously, it’s pretty hard to imagine the company letting go of such a profitable series.
Why should there be a new Sims game
Despite its success, The Sims 4 has its own problems which cannot really be fixed with DLCs and expansion packs. Because of this, we definitely hope to see a new game in the series and we hope to hear an announcement about this soon. We pretty much already know that The Sims 5 is about to be released, for the simple fact that the timing is right and EA is always into profit. You probably know by now that a new Sims game was launched every 5 years, which means that we would expect to see the release of The Sims 5 sometime in 2019. The Sims 4 was clearly a huge success, as it sold 5 million copies on PC, however, there are still things to improve.
When should we expect an announcement
We believe that we should see an official announcement of The Sims 5 any time this year. When it comes to the release of the game, in case it actually stays within the pattern of all previous tiles, we should expect a date somewhere next year.
What to expect from The Sims 5
The lack of cars in The Sims 4 is definitely a big inconvenience, so we expect to see cars in the next title. Another big problem is the fact that we no longer have an open world in the current game, which is certainly not a good thing, as it makes the gameplay feel very limited. We also expect to see parenthood included in The Sims 5, especially since it was added for the console version of The Sims 4. Nevertheless, the fans are also waiting for a completely new expansion pack, mobile integration and more personality traits.
