Fans are not that upbeat about "The Sims 5" especially after "The Sims 4" failed to win its fans and meet their expectations. Even though Electronic Arts (EA) is coming up with the latest update for "The Sims 4: City Living," it may not be overtly welcomed by fans.

EA expected "The Sims 4" to be a major hit like the previous three games but is now extremely anxious after its failure. Thus, the big question is whether EA will come out with "The Sims 5" at all. If reports are to be believed, EA's plans to release the next game may have taken a backseat, writes Movie News Guide.

According to reports, whether "The Sims 5" will come out or not depends a lot on sales figures of "The Sims 4." However, insider sources have revealed that EA is not planning to close the franchise despite poor sales figures. Reports stated that one mistake can be corrected but wrapping up an entire intellectual property could be too much.

Moreover, EA is a veteran in the gaming industry and knows how to bounce back after a failure. It will surely come out with a way to correct its mistake and come up with something so interesting that "The Sims 5" fans will lap it up like crazy.

Keeping this in mind, gaming experts believe, EA, instead of coming up with an update for "The Sims 4," should instead release a new game altogether. Thus, a "The Sims 5" with the latest features, updates and upgraded gameplay may go a long way in wiping out the failure of the fourth game.

The paid expansion of "The Sims 4: City Living" does look great but players may be reluctant to shell out more for a game that has failed miserably in meeting expectations. It is also possible that EA will analyze the response of the paid expansion and then take a decision regarding "The Sims 5." The key features of "The Sims 4 City Living" can be found in this Business Wire press release.
