Everyone is waiting for the Sims 5 release date. A couple of years have passed since Sims 4 has been released, and a new game is highly anticipated. At first, developers were not sure whether the series will continue, but the success of Sims 4 convinced them.
A total revenue of $1 billion was generated by the Sims 4 ever since it was released in 2014. The game has millions of players on both the mobile platforms and PC. Therefore, there are many fans that cannot wait to get a new update.
Last year was a great year for EA, which means that they should have all the resources needed to develop a new game.
“Fiscal 2018 was a year of strong growth and continued transformation for Electronic Arts, as we expanded the reach of our leading franchises like FIFA, Battlefield and The Sims to more players across more platforms and geographies, In the year ahead, we will expand the world of play with amazing new experiences and new IP, more competition, and industry-leading subscription programs. There has never been a more exciting time to be engaging and entertaining global communities,” declared Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson back then.
A 2019 release is out of the question as it is February already, and no announcement has been made yet. However, based on the fact that 2018 was an incredible year for the Sims, developers should consider the Sims 5 a top priority. Therefore, a new game should be released as soon as possible. This is the reason why a 2020 is not out of the question. The sequel is expected to come with a couple of changes and improvements, and fans also hope that it will bring back the open world environment. If the Sims 5 will be released next year, we can expect an announcement in the upcoming months.
