The 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo has unveiled some of the best forthcoming games of 2019. Some of the most notable games that garnered huge applause from the audience were Cyberpunk 2077, Remake of Final Fantasy 7, Halo Infinite, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 among others. Nevertheless, there is one game that the elite gamers and the gaming community missed during the event, “The Sims 5”.
The fans who attended the E3 wondered why Electronic Arts and Maxis didn’t mention anything about the fifth instalment of The Sims video game series. It is also unsure if the fifth instalment of The Sims will be a progressive sequel or it will be different from the previous games. The Sims 4 is still getting regular upgrades and DLCs which satisfies the needs of the gamers. If Maxis and EA continue with regular upgrades and DLCs, The Sims 4 will still win the hearts of millions of gamers.
Is The Sims 5 not happening?
Neither Electronic Arts nor Maxis are interested in showing the fifth instalment of The Sims series to the gamers. The Sims game series is one of the biggest video game franchises in the history of video games. This might be the reason why the developer and the publisher didn’t reveal anything about the upcoming game.
Moreover, it is not clear whether The Sims 5 is in the development stage, and that’s why nobody heard anything about The Sims 5 during the E3. There is a high chance for the company to have thought that before moving onto The Sims 5, the fourth instalment of the game, The Sims 4 could be entirely developed.
New DLCs are coming in regularly, along with more modern upgrades. Rumors also suggest that the developer, Maxis, has hired a new “Guru” to get a team together for future endeavors. Michael Duke even joined the team of developers this year in April. He is also credited as the senior producer for the acclaimed Sims 4.
The Sims 5 will not be released soon
It is safe to say that The Sims 4 is presently still in the development stage, which allows the game to receive new expansion packs and upgrades. Developers aren’t yet done with The Sims 4. When the developers run out of the option of bringing new upgrades and changes to the game, they would finally introduce The Sims 5. The Island Living has become an instant hit, and fans are in love with the series. Maybe during the E3 2020, EA and Maxis might give a sneak peek about The Sims 5.
