‘The Sims 5’ Latest News & Updates: Chances Of Fifth Installment Grim, EA Shutting Down? Details Here!

“The Sims 5” expectedly has no credible update as of to date with EA and Maxis focusing heavily on “The Sims 4: City Living”. A lot hinges on the paid expansion which gives gamers a ton of things to do, the result of which should be known in the coming months.

As far as the status of “The Sims 5”, its development is close to none. Game producer Grant Rodiek made it clear that they have not started work on the fifth installment as they try to resuscitate whatever they can from a poor-showing by “The Sims 4”, Neurogadget reported.

As mentioned in a previous post, “The Sims 5” is still under heavy evaluation. The intent of the “City Living” expansion pack is to stir up hype and interest on the part of gamers, which will more or less dictate if a fifth rendition of the life simulation game is feasible or not.

That said, most are left with no choice but to console themselves with “The Sims 4” and the additional content that EA has to offer. There are bugs reported for the fourth installment though all that is likely to be patched soon. Take note that EA only released a PC version of “The Sims 4”, another red flag on whether “The Sims 5” would still make sense.

One thing to ponder on is that “The Sims” franchise has been doing great until “The Sims 4”. Taken as a whole, EA would be deemed foolish to suddenly pull the plug because of one version’s misfortunes.

Hence, the best way to approach it is that EA is hard at work trying to recover lost profit. With “The Sims 5” being a totally different installment, it should in no way be tied up to the debacle of “The Sims 4” and instead be used as a means to come up with a better edition for the enjoyment of life-simulation gamers.
