A while ago, the producer of The Sims 4 was saying that if this game won’t sell, there won’t be a sequel. Apparently, according to the latest rumors, Electronic Arts and Maxis are considering bringing The Sims 5 to consoles, via a port that’s being developed by EA.
Two days have passed since the release of The Sims 4 and since then, the game has received many expansion packs, game packs, stuff packs and additional downloadable content (DLC), plus on July 14, via a game patch, were introduced nannies and the ability to a adjust lighting.
At this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event from June, fans were expecting an announcement about The Sims 4 coming to consoles, but the studio has remained mum and it didn’t even give details about the development status of The Sims 5. Now, new rumors suggest that EA will focus on producing The Sims 5 for consoles and a follow up with a port for the PC will be the alternative.
So far, The Sims 4 has received many negative feedbacks, and players have complained about the limited gameplay. The developer didn’t want to leave things the way they were and it made enhancements on graphics and processing time, and players have praised these changes.
Maybe EA’s lack of interest to bring a sequel to The Sims 4 sooner is justified. Maybe the studio is waiting for the release of the next generation consoles, in order to know how to continue with its plans. Microsoft is preparing Project Scorpio and Xbox One S, while Sony will bring PlayStation Neo and since they’re expected to support 4K resolution and VR (PlayStation Neo and Project Scorpio), The Sims 5 will be developed to support these two features, offering players the best experience.
Another reason why EA might delay the release of The Sims 4 or 5 on consoles is because the current game is getting a big amount of downloadable content and will continue to receive new packs. Until now, EA has released two expansion packs, three game packs, and eight stuff packs – the latest one Backyard Stuff.
