We discussed with a reporter from Kotaku about a Concept Art of an unannounced The Sims 4 World. They reached out to EA to ask more about this Concept Art and will it ever be realized.
This is their response:
It’s really cool to see some of these old concept art pieces surfacing on the internet. Over the course of development, the artists in The Sims Studio explored so many different things, and there was a stack of concept art produced. The team looked at all kinds of different visual styles, locations and even time periods during this exploratory phase. That’s what pre-production is all about. As you will already understand, just because there is concept art, that doesn’t mean that there was ever any intent to take any of it into production.
So there you have it. The ”mystery” about the Veronaville-styled World is finally put to an end. Even though we saw this world come to life in Dev Screens, it’s still not sure is EA just hiding information about this world, since ”just because there is concept art, that doesn’t mean that there was ever any intent to take any of it into production” doesn’t look like a completely true sentence. Take a look at the leaked dev screens below and you’ll know why:
It’s still unsure does EA ever plan to add this world into the game, but at least we know that this World WAS put into production!
