The Sims 4 has been a hit among many lovers of the franchise, but some are looking forward to a new entry in the series. Maxis and EA have released a wealth of DLC for The Sims 4, and it is likely that new packs will come in the near future. However, the fans look forward to The Sims 5 release.
Before the release of The Sims 4, one of the producers stated that the success of the title and its popularity would play an important role in any discussions related to a sequel. Maxis has been keen on keeping even DLC information a secret, and there have been no comments related to the possible release of a new entry in the series. However, the internet hive mind is always hard at work and below you can find some of the most interesting titles rumors related to the anticipated game.
The Sims 5 Rumors
Single-player and multiplayer modes
During an investor’s meeting, a high-ranking employee stated that The Sims Online was ahead of its time, providing a comprehensive multiplayer experience when the internet was still relatively new. A future Sims game will come with a persistent multiplayer experience, a possibility that seems quite probable since EA, the publisher of the franchise, has embraced live-service video games in recent years. The single-player mode will remain a core part of the game, allowing players to pick between a social or nonsocial game mode at will.
The online version will be free-to-play
Based on the previous rumor, some voices argue that the multiplayer mode will be available as a standalone title that can be downloaded and enjoyed for free. The basic content will be available for everyone, and those who wish to play with exclusive stuff will be able to purchase DLC with the help of micro-transactions.
The Sims 5 on Nintendo Switch
The Sims games tend to work well on modest hardware, and Maxis may opt to release a Nintendo Switch for Sims fans who like to play on the go. So, The Sims 5 might come to Nintendo Switch.
