EA talks about the present and the future of The Sims Franchise in their latest Financial Report

Electronic Arts has just released their latest report for the Third Quarter of the Fiscal Year 2019, talking about some of their products including The Sims.

In this report they’ve mentioned various important facts regarding The Sims 4 and The Sims Franchise in general.

Our Sims franchise continues to thrive in live services – our Sims 4 community grew by 4.8 million unique players last year, our monthly active players continue to grow year over-year, and we just crossed $1 billion in lifetime revenue for the game. We continue to have strong expectations for The Sims going forward, and in FY20 we’re bringing at least 20 new content drops and expansion packs to our Sims games across PC, mobile and console.

We plan to bring a lot of great new content to the passionate and growing player base in The Sims 4.

 

Just in time for The Sims Franchise’s 19th Anniversary, The Sims Team managed to rake more than 1 billion dollars in total revenue. This includes ALL The Sims 4 games in the series including the Base Game, Expansion Packs, Game Packs and Stuff Packs on both PC / Mac and Xbox One / PS4.

They’ve also mentioned some other interesting facts regarding The Sims 4! First of all, The Sims 4 player base has grown for about 5 million unique players in just one year, with monthly active players continuing to grow year-over-year.

There’s also a very important statement regarding the future of The Sims 4 and The Sims Mobile. EA has stated that, for the Fiscal Year 2020 (which lasts from April 2019 to April 2020), they plan to put out AT LEAST 20 new content drops and Expansion Packs for The Sims 4 (on PC & Console) as well as The Sims Mobile.

It seems that EA is very confident about The Sims Franchise and that they have big plans for The Sims 4 and The Sims Mobile in the coming months.

  • Release more blank template worlds like Newcrest or figure out a way that we can add and make our own worlds. In a game that has always been very free flowing and expansive this game is very rigid and limited. No more releasing these limited worlds in these $40 dollar packs. Also, I hope that Chinese new year dribble didn’t count as one of the 20 content releases.

      • But the type of content DOES count as a content drop. Meaning any free updates in the upcoming fiscal year do count as drops.

        This also suggests that we won’t be getting an EP/GP/SP until April, as it looks better in their reporting/financials to have it happen in the new fiscal year. No point in releasing before then.

  • Please rerelease these console games (The sims,Busted out, The urbz, The sims 2,pets and Castaway) for Playstation 4 they were awesome games and i and many othere that grew up with them want to see them on current gen

    • As much as I’d love to see this too, I can assure you this one won’t happen. There’s not a huge demand for these games to come back specifically and it would take much more than a small community to get back. Honestly, I’d probably cost just as much to buy a PS2 (They have them on Amazon or probably local pawn shops) and rebuy some of the games. Sure, it’s not on your main system but it is something.

  • How about adding University life , with some new careers that you can only apply for if you have completed a degree in that area. And make it where there are chances that you could not get the job. Also, would be very neat to see the careers that you can get from going to college would be like the get to work and actress /actor jobs, where you can go to work with them. Some careers like Teacher/Professor, Political careers, Professional Sports, Advanced Technology Careers. And another job/career idea is the Factory job. Where you have to go to college to become a supervisor or plant manager. But you could get a job doing floor work without a degree.
