The Sims 4 has been out for a while, and the game is quite good. However, many gamers are looking towards a new entry in the franchise, especially if we take into account that a new generation of consoles is on the horizon. But what about The Sims 5?
When The Sims 4 was released, one of the producers stated that another would be released if The Sims 4 generated enough revenue. The game was a big hit among the community, and Maxis released a generous amount of DLC in the form of stuff packs and expansions.
The Sims 5 Rumors Roundup – Possible, Release Date, Gameplay, And More
Maxis is hard at work
According to some sources, Maxis, the developer of the franchise, is hard at work on new content packs for The Sims 4. It is thought that at least three new DLCs pack will be released in the future, bringing new content to the game beyond 2020.
It would seem that a small team is working on ideas for The Sims 5, including the content that will be available in the base game. There is no way to verify the claim at this point.
Possible release date
Since Maxis remains focused on DLCs for, likely, Sims 4, it is expected that it will not start to work on the future game, The Sims 5, for a long time. No announcements have been offered this year, which may infer that the game is still in the early stages of development, according to some voices. A new Sims game could after 2020, when the new generation of consoles will be available across the world.
The Sims 5 could offer an open-world where the players can travel directly from one place to another with the help of vehicles. More content at launch would be great as many fans argue that some of the content offered as DLC should be in the game from the start. An official announcement could surface in the future.
