The Sims 5: EA confirms game is in development, will be cross-platform

The Sims 5: EA confirms game is in development, will be cross-platform

On February 4, 2020, The Sims franchise celebrated its 20th anniversary! The first simulation game was released in 2000 and fans have been waiting for the fifth of the name for more than 6 years now. Don't panic, The Sims 5 is in preparation and Electronic Arts says so! No official announcement has been made and we don't have a release date, but Andrew Wilson, EA's CEO, has finally spoken about The Sims 5.

It's the CNN website who interviewed Andrew:

As Maxis continues to think about The Sims for a new generation across platforms and a cloud-enabled world, you should imagine that while we will always stay true to our inspiration, escape, creation, self-improvement motivation, that this notion of social interaction and competition – like the kind of things that were actually present in The Sims Online many years ago – will start to become part of the ongoing The Sims experience in the years to come.

Two things to remember, then:

  • The Sims 5 is in preparation by the Maxis developers,
  • The idea of a cross-platform game has emerged and will surely be proposed for this new Sims.

Note that The Sims have always been released first on PC and then on consoles. This time, it seems that gamers will be able to enjoy The Sims 5 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series right out with the release of the game. In addition, gamers from all over the world, and on different consoles, will be able to play together (cross-platform).

Maybe we'll learn more at the E3 2020?
