‘The Sims 5’ Latest News, Update: EA Expected to Remain Silent About Fifth Entry as ‘Anthem’ Issue Balloons

At the moment, EA doesn’t seem too interested in making “The Sims 5” on account of the current entry making tons of money for the gaming studio. The fourth installment of the franchise experienced significant growth last year, both on its player base and its sales performance.

The good news is that due to this success, EA will likely order “The Sims 5.” The problem is the release date. With the current installment being a huge cash cow for the company, it wouldn’t make sense for them to order a new sequel as both titles will then compete for profit, The Leaker reported.

Perhaps the most promising news about “The Sims 5” will come during the upcoming E3 event. While the company has since opted out of the gathering for some time now, they do conduct their own event – EA Play – at a proximal location.

There’s a possibility that EA could hint at what their future plans for “The Sims 5” during this conference and whether or not discussion about it has been broached behind closed doors. At the moment, most of the fans who have been waiting for the fifth entry are asking EA to create a massive map and wider customization options. Higher graphics is also another improvement that the franchise’s following has been asking.

On the problematic side of things, EA is currently facing a massive backlash involving their newly-released looter-shooter, “Anthem.” There have been a plethora of issues facing this title including decreased loot drops, graphics downgrade, crashes, and the lack of stapled features. But the most concerning among them is “Anthem” crashing PS4 resulting in the console becoming unresponsive. With this issue on EA’s lap, it’s likely that they will remain quiet about the “The Sims 5” for a while.
