In the most recent report given to us by Electronic Arts, there are some hints about the release date of The Sims 5. It is not going to happen soon since The Sims 4 still makes a lot of money. This means that the new game would not be coming out until the current game does not stop from making money. This might lead to a release date in 2020.
Apparently, The Sims 4 is too profitable
According to some sources, EA is willing to let their fans wait for the release of The Sims 5. The current game made over a billion dollars in its lifetime and the company has really no reason to change that. Money is still the top goal and, after if they launch the next title, they could ruin the cash flow.
The company wants to release a lot of content for The Sims 4 in the future. That should happen before 2020, when they will probably release the game for us. To some extent, it’s understandable, but we cannot go through the fact that they do not respect their fans.
The Sims 5 to come out in 2020 or later
When the game launches, will definitely before EA has taken advantage of all that The Sims 4 is. Fans can expect the game to come out in 2020 or even later than that. We know, this will disappoint a lot of gamers who were hoping to see the next game as soon as possible. However, it seems that the company’s priorities are not represented by the players, which is not actually that surprising, given their history and practices.
