‘The Sims 5’ Release Date, Update: Greedy EA Hints Launch Before 2020 is Impossible, Money Still Top Goal

In a recent financial report by EA, it was hinted that the release of “The Sims 5” is not going to be anytime soon since “The Sims 4” is still making a lot of money. Therefore, it can be inferred that the next game won’t be coming out until the current one stops being profitable. This would then put the launch of the fifth numbered “The Sims” game beyond 2020.

As Business Times reports, EA appears to be more than willing to let fans fester while waiting for the launch of “The Sims 5.” With the current game in the franchise making over a billion dollars in its lifetime, the company has no reason to mess with that arrangement right now. Money is still the top goal, after all, and launching the next title could ruin its current cash cow’s productivity.

This information stems from the most recent financial report that EA released with regards to the game. Basically, the company intends to release a ton of contents for “The Sims 4” in the near future. That would be upwards to 2020, which should work just fine for the tech giant. After all, the players have made it clear that they have no issues with its practices and this will likely continue in “The Sims 5.”

If ever “The Sims 5” is launched, it will not be before EA has completely milked the current game, so fans can just expect the title to come out sometime around late 2020 or beyond. This is bound to disappoint a lot of gamers who were hoping to try out the next iteration of the franchise. Unfortunately, it would seem that the company’s priorities do not have the players as the top concern, which is not entirely surprising when looking at its history and practices.
