The Sims 5: the continuation of the famous series should be unveiled this year

The Sims 5: an announcement could occur in October 2022

What is it about ? “The Sims” is one of those series of video games that have always been part of the crown jewels of the publisher Electronic Arts. But between releases of the main parts, there are always a few years that the game is kept fresh with minor updates and expansions. Industry insider Jeff Grubb has learned from some sources that not only is a Sims 5 already in development, but the game will be unveiled soon.

Regarding the announcement of the next installment of the famous series, Jeff Grub seems quite sure of himself. In the YouTube video from the gaming channel “Giant Bomb”, however, he points out that the game is probably not yet developed and that fans should not have high hopes for an upcoming release just yet.

The Sims 5 is coming. Announcement is imminent and I heard it’s probably next month. This all coincides with what they said say. Expect to hear about The Sims 5 soon, but don’t expect to be able to play it anytime soon, the game is apparently still a long way off.

Following up on his statement, Grubb also clarified why a new Sims game always takes a long time to develop and it’s still going to be a while before you can play The Sims 5: “The thing about The Sims is is that these numbered sequel jumps are always a tough time for developers, because they go back to basics from all the content in the universe and then rebuild over time.”

The Sims 5: the announcement could come in October 2022

Is the leak realistic? Considering the fact that The Sims 4 was released in 2014 and has already received many expansions, it is not unrealistic to think that there will be news of a full sequel soon. After all, The Sims games have enjoyed unspoiled popularity for years, which is why Electronic Arts has regularly come up with new paid expansions for the series.
