SimGuruKate has confirmed during the Maxis Monthly livestream that The Sims 4’s free Content Update that was planned for October (bringing a new Stylist Influencer Career and possibly the Terrain Tool along with it) has been postponed.
She hasn’t specifically said why but she did confirm that the team had to polish some things and make sure that the content update they’re bringing works best for everyone.
For those who didn’t tune into the live stream, today we shared that unfortunately there will no longer be an October patch. We needed a little extra time to really polish things up for everyone to enjoy. Sometimes things in Game Development need to shift just a little.
