GloboSat, a brazilian TV channel has mentioned The Sims 4 in their program that talks about the marketplace without gender restrictions. In this episode, they’ve got to talk with SimGuruLyndsay about their CAS Gender Update, as well as how the game’s been doing in terms of sales. Check out our transcription from the video down below!
Lyndsay Pearson: Well, The Sims has always been a game about creating yourself, the people you know and providing you as many options to tell as many stories as you can imagine. So, when we looked at our Create A Sim and try to think of new ways to expand possibilities, it was a natural conclusion to say “Why don’t we break down the gender restrictions?”
Interviewer: We have a non-official number that The Sims 4 has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Is that correct?
Lyndsay Pearson: Yeah, it’s definitely somewhere over that! We don’t really track specific numbers but there are millions of players who are playing The Sims 4 and have seen this update.
Interviewer: Was there any negative reaction to this option?
Lyndsay Pearson: You know, we had a lot of conversations about that and we were worried about that but I was really pleased with the fact that our fans and our players and honestly the gaming community and large was super supportive of what we were able to create!
