100% a generic and photoshopped cover image and 100% not confirmed but I LIVE IN HOPE!
The Sims 5 has been listed on a gaming website and scheduled to release in 2021.
At this stage it’s pretty normal that there would only be a listing and a ‘made up’ image so this is a good as it gets right now.
The Sims 4 is still an extremely ‘unfinished’ game but it certainly makes me super clear on what we need to see in The Sims 5.
I have absolutely no doubt that The Sims 5 (or some kind of other Sims game) is being worked on given the ‘disappearance’ of some of the major Sim Guru’s a while back and also how long The Sims 4 has been around.
They certainly have some incredibly clear feedback from The Sims 4 to be able to launch a great game straight away with The Sims 5. They now know what NOT to do.
Personally I am looking forward to an open world game with incredible gameplay, spontaneity and humour.
It’s sad to say but basically most disappointed Simmers who have had a bad experience with The Sims 4 just want The Sims 5 to be a game that launches with everything The Sims 4 should of either launched with or at least had by now.
It’s important that The Sims 5 launches using an engine that can support what they need to deliver and doesn’t lace them with limitations from the start like we have seen with The Sims 4.
I want to be wow-ed, I want to be excited, I want to be blown away but for now all we can do is wait and hope.
Roll on 2021!
