Quite some time has passed since we received a Sims game, and fans have started to speculate about the next one. Since the last game was released back in 2014, it would be about time to receive a new one.
There are a couple of predictions already and it will be interesting to see which ones will come through. Let’s talk about the Sims 5.
Technology evolved a lot since 2014, so we might get some exciting new features for the Sims 5. For instance, there has been a lot of speculation about immersion and realism. There are also some fans which seem to believe that a complete 3D experience should be possible in the next game.
The Sims 5 should also bring more realistic elements. For example, we could get ridesharing in the game. This means that your Sim will be able to share a ride, just like we have Uber in real life. Fans also hope that the Sims 5 will bring back an open world environment, as this was removed from the Sims 4.
When will it come out?
There is no official release date and developers haven’t offered us any clues. However, if we take a look at the releases of the previous games we can see a pattern. Usually, a five-year interval is respected. The first one came out in 2000, the second one in 2004, the third one in 2009 and finally the last one came out in 2014.
If this pattern would be respected, the game should come out this very year. However, that is very unlikely, as we know that the Sims 4 should get more content. Therefore, it is more likely to see the game at some point between 2020 and 2022.
