‘The Sims 4’ City Living DLC Release Date, News & Update: ‘The Sims 5’ Launch Reportedly Depends on Expansion Pack; Fans Disappointed?

"The Sims 5" does not have a bright future as it is not happening anytime soon. Current developments suggest that EA is not even thinking of having a fifth installment for the game that has acquired quite a big fan base. The fourth installment of the popular series released in 2014 and now fans want a follow-up game. However, that seems unlikely.

This is reportedly because "The Sims 4" failed to live up to the expectations of the developer as well as fans. The first three games were insanely popular but the fourth one had its share of bad luck, bugs and glitches. Moreover, the game failed to bring in as many feature updates as was expected, writes NEUROGADGET. So, when is "The Sims 5" arriving?

In order to make up for the loss, the developer released the "The Sims 4 City Living" expansion pack. Despite releasing the same, the game hasn't really taken off though game makers are on a wait-and-watch mode now. Thus, in a way, "The Sims 5" game's release depends on the success of the "City Living" expansion pack.

As per reports, Sims Studio officials have also confirmed the same. One of the features added in "City Living" DLC is event festivals. Food Stalls have also been added but they too have bugs. Players have pointed out a glitch where the character just does not stop eating even when not hungry.

This results in excessive weight gain and the need to work out. Players have also complained about babies getting stuck in apartments, elevators and even on the street. Thankfully, the new update addresses this issue. However, even the DLC has bugs and it does not seem that it will bring in huge profits for "The Sims 4" developer.

Game producer Grant Rodiek has directly stated that they are not even thinking about a "The Sims 5" game. Naturally, "The Sims" fans are terribly disappointed.
