Since EA Games released the downloadable content for pack "City Living" for "The Sims 4," fans are already waiting for "The Sims 5" to be announced. The DLC is crucial for the future of the next game as its existence depends on the money the DLC brings for Maxis. Thus, it is clear that "The Sims 5" development depends on a lot on the revenue the DLC generates. However, this hasn't stopped fans from anticipating the gaming features in "The Sims 5."

Developer Maxis and publisher EA could be bringing VR and 360-degree technologies to "The Sims 5." The game is also expected to be released in 2017 if everything goes according to plans. VR technology is the next big thing in gaming and if "The Sims 5" really brings these features to the fans, it will be a different experience altogether.

Since the first game released in 2002 and the latest "The Sims 4" in 2014, players have only got to play the game from a third-person perspective. VR technology will allow players to experience the game from the character's perspective. However, VR and 360-degree technologies require a huge budget. That is why the developer is not sure whether to go ahead with "The Sims 5."

"The Sims 5" release date is not yet confirmed. Previous "The Sims" games released in 2002, 2004, 2009 and 2014. Fans are hoping against hope that "The Sims 4: City Living" DLC make huge profits so that the next installment is developed. All hope is not lost yet as a "Sims" game typically takes three to five years to develop.

Many game experts believe "The Sims" game franchise should also release on other platforms. Currently, it's only on Microsoft Windows and OS X. Releasing on other platforms will ensure great profits considering the fact that "The Sims" game series is an insanely popular series. Stay tuned on GameNGuide for more updates on "The Sims 5."
