‘The Sims 5’ Release Date: Fifth Entry Could Be Hinted in Upcoming E3 Event

News regarding the development of “The Sims 5” is still scarce on the web and it’s expected that EA will remain mum about the future of the next entry. The speculation stems from the recent financial report of the company stating that the current installment is still generating a lot of money, Tech News Watch said.

“Our Sims franchise continues to thrive in live services. Our Sims 4 community grew by 4.8 million unique players last year, our monthly active players continued to grow year-over-year and we just crossed $1 billion in lifetime revenue for the game,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said. He continued that because of this growth, they’ll be adding more content for the game, which means they’re uninterested in making “The Sims 5.”

For now, anyway. The same financial report stated that EA is planning on releasing more content for the current entry in the fiscal year of 2020. It should be noted that this fiscal year will be starting in April 2019 and will end in March 2020. As such, news regarding “The Sims 5” could be hinted in the upcoming E3 event, with a possible official announcement on E3 next year.

That’s the optimist side of it, at the least. With the current installment making a lot of money and its player base continues to grow, “The Sims 5” will not be here anytime soon. Fortunately, this success does imply that EA will be looking to develop the next entry for the franchise.

As for what fans are expecting for “The Sims 5,” map size and wider customization options seem to be the top priority. With “Red Dead Redemption 2” raising the bar of open world design and the upcoming “Cyberpunk 2077” introducing game-changing verticality, EA would do the franchise a disservice if they don’t at least incorporate both of these elements into the game.
