The Sims franchise is among the most famous simulation games that you can find. Therefore, it is understandable that fans would get excited for the possible release of a 5th installment. Nevertheless, it will be on the basis on the confirmation to be made by Electronics Arts that The Sims 5 exists or will exist in the near future.
Possible Release in 2019
Back in 2014, it can be traced that The Sims 4 was released in that year and 5 years before that was The Sims 3, and so on. So, it will be more or less 4-5 years between releases. Accordingly, it is unlikely that The Sims 5 will come out any time soon. In fact, it will be released some time in 2019, which is 5 years after the last installment of The Sims in 2014.
Although a strong evidence suggests that The Sims 5 will be released in 2019, there are no confirmation yet about this theory. Despite that, fans are definitely excited about this development. Moreover, it was rumored that the 5th installment will have many features in comparison to The Sims 4. This can be comparable to the 3rd from the 4th installment in terms to the map layout and visual style. Based on the patterns, there is also a great possibility that The Sims 5 will follow suit.
Anyway, there were rumors that previous installments will remain as it is, which will be greatly based on The Sims 3. This is also in contrast to The Sims 4 in which players are not allowed to drive cars or any other vehicles for that matter. The possible comeback of these features might be observed in The Sims 5 with a layout to be based on a neighborhood style. Moreover, bicycles, cars or motorcycles might just be the feature that you are looking for.
There were also speculations that The Sims 5 will be based on VR or virtual reality. With this development, there might be a time when the game will become the most immersive game of The Sims franchise.
Revival of Previous Concept
In addition, Electronic Arts would want to feature the neighborhood scheme once again, which was used in previous versions. As a result, it could bring all the connected networks to confirm that everyone in the game would easily reach a variety of houses, lots, and shops, to name a few. Aside from the vehicles mentioned earlier, players will be able to jog or run around the neighborhood as a new or revived feature.
Updates About The Sims 4
On the other hand, The Sims 4 has recently been given some new stuff and game packs in which the full details would be revealed in a few weeks. Moreover, there are more improvements coming in for The Sims 4, which include 3 expansion packs, namely City Living, Get To Work, and Get Together. Thus, while fans are awaiting the release of The Sims 5, the progressive releases of the game packs in the current installment should be great news for fans that the franchise is thriving.
