Electronic Arts might announce The Sims 5 during EA Play Live 2021

Will The Sims 5 be announced soon? An anonymous user of the popular 4chan forum shared some interesting details about the upcoming games that may be announced during EA Play Live 2021. This news was also shared on Reddit, another popular forum, as well.

According to the source on 4chan, Electronic Arts (EA) will announce The Sims 5 during this year’s EA Play Live. This reoccurring event will take place on June 14th at 11am EDT/8am PDT/4pm BST.

Besides that, EA will share a teaser of the official game trailer. There will also be an interview with the producer of the game.

The 4chan source also claims that EA will release the fifth generation during Spring 2022 on PC. It’s likely that the Mac version will follow shortly after that, or they might release it at the same time as the PC version.

Is The Sims 5 actually coming soon?

Is The Sims 5 actually coming soon? According to PlayStation Magazine, it will. Here are some release details for PlayStation 5 (PS5)

You may have noticed that there are rumors about The Sims 5 popping up all over the place. Many of them are just fake news. Sometimes we come across something that may not be fake. Our colleagues at Sims Community shared some very interesting news about the fifth generation!

PlayStation Magazine UK, the official PlayStation magazine, came up with a list of games that are expected to be released in the future. The interesting thing is that they have also listed ‘The Sims 5’, as you can see on the image below:

According to the magazine, the game will come to PlayStation 5 (PS5), as can be seen on page 29. However, this doesn’t mean that it will not be launched on PC, Mac, Xbox Series X or possible other platforms. PlayStation Magazine also mentions that Maxis and The Sims Studio will be responsible for developing the game and that Electronic Arts is the publisher.

According to PlayStation Magazine, we have to wait a bit more for the official release of the game, as it shows that it will take 12 months or more. They didn’t list an official release date, but it’s quite sure that it will not happen in 2020.

Usually there is about a year between the official announcement and the actual release of a new Sims generation. This would mean that the fifth generation will not be launched before the summer of 2021, simply because there hasn’t been an official announcement yet.

PlayStation Magazine also shared that The Sims 5 will include online features, such as interactions and competitions. This seems to be correct, as the CEO of Electronic Arts, Andrew Wilson, shared earlier in 2020 that the fifth installment will contain elements that are based on The Sims Online. Unfortunately, this game was shut down in 2008. But… maybe there is a chance that it will return?

For now, we just have to wait for the official announcement of the game by Electronic Arts and Maxis!
