EA and Maxis continue to ramp up things for “The Sims 4” though new content, the next paid DLC of which is expected to come out this November 1. This is a paid add-on and something that only PC gamers can enjoy.

Speaking of game versions, the question on whether “The Sims 4” would make the jump to the game consoles like the PS4 or Xbox One is something that many are waiting on. As mentioned in a previous post, the absence of such has been attributed to the poor sales of “The Sims 4” hence something that may or may not happen in the future.

Release of new Sony PS4 Pro unlikely to change fate

As most know, Sony introduced the new game consoles on their end such as the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro. The game console is expected to come out before 2016 comes to a close, one carrying improved graphics which should be perfect for “The Sims 4” gamers.

Due to some technical issues tied up to porting issues, Sony has been having problems porting “The Sims 4” to its game consoles which will likely go as far as the Sony PS4 Pro. But the possibility for the Xbox One could be a different story altogether that could include the Xbox Scorpio.

Should “The Sims 4” players still wait?

“The Sims 4” has been around for some time now and it may just be a matter of time where “The Sims 5” comes out in the open. EA and Maxis follow a usual five-year cycle and if they stick to that tradition, the next life simulation game should be out by 2019.

However, there are other factors in play right now and much of that is the poor sales that “The Sims 4” rendered. With no game console version out, could “The Sims 5” release be affected as well?
