Will we get The Sims 5?

131

Even though there is nothing officially announced, there are plenty of rumours that suggest that we could see The Sims 5 release at some point in the future. So after this statement, the next question that pops is: When will we get our hands on one of the most awaited titles?

Since the launch of the first game in 2000, The Sims has established a solid reputation for itself. The last title, The Sims 4, was released back in 2014, six years ago. So with this huge gap, it is no surprise that the fans are anxious for the next entry. It is not uncommon to wait a few years for the new release since there was a gap of five years between The Sims 2 (2004) and The Sims 3 (2009) and also another five-year gap between Sims 3 and The Sims 4 (2013). 

What raises concerns is the fact that the five-year waiting period has passed, and there is no official announcement about The Sims 5. So it is no surprise that these days the internet is full of rumours and speculations. But some statements have been officially made which says we might have to wait just a little longer.  

Official News on The Sims 5

Just a few weeks after the release of The Sims 4, Grant Rodiek, the producers of the game, made a very shocking statement. He said that the team is not currently working on The Sims 5. They are waiting to see if The Sims 4 is hit, if it happens, then they will put The Sims 5 on the radar. If you are a fan, then you will be glad to know that The Sim 4 was a big success, and you can see plenty of streams on Twitch where the new DLC is well-applauded and passionately played by the community. So if the producers and the developers were hoping for the success of The Sims 4 before committing to the next release, then we are confident that we will get our game. He was quoted saying that they are looking to create an online version of the game that will be clinical in The Sims experience for years to come.

However, he didn’t reveal any dates or even the exact year about when we will get the next game. But looking at these strong, and confident statements from EA’s executive, we believe that the next title of the game is worth the wait.

In the meantime, we recommend you play The Sims 4 as much as you can. Since The Sims 5 will surely be a game-changer and we surely revamp the perspective of the long-running life simulation franchise.

The Sims is a series of games that can look back on a long tradition. The first game came on the market in 2000 and, according to the company, sold around 175 million copies. There are now 4 main games in the series including, extensions such as The Sims Medieval, MySims, or SimAnimals.
