The Sims Blog: What The Sims Team is Planning This Year


Lyndsay Pearson, General Manager for The Sims has written up an insightful blog post on talking about what are some of the things we should expect for The Sims 4 this year. In the blog post she revealed that we’ll be getting a new Expansion Pack, Game Pack and a Stuff Pack in the next six months for The Sims 4 as well as regular free updates for the game.

See what she has to say:

Hello, Simmers!

As you may have noticed, we like to try new things around here once in a while. It’s important to us to continue to surprise and delight you with updates we know you’ll love, themes you maybe haven’t seen yet, or ideas you never even expected. We also always strive to be as open with you as possible, sharing what we can, when we can.

There’s a lot happening over the next year in The Sims, including our 5th Anniversary for The Sims 4 and our 20th Anniversary for The Sims! So, in celebration of this milestone year, we want to try something new and let you know, far ahead, what types of experiences you can expect to see from The Sims 4.

I know you want to know, but I cannot share details about themes, features, content, or specific dates. I also don’t want to spoil everything, because it’s fun to be a little surprised. With that in mind, here’s the plan for new paid packs we are working on for The Sims 4 PC. Over the next six months, we’ll be bringing you a new expansion packgame pack, and stuff pack! We will also continue to release updates to the base game.

This list, as with anything in game development, is subject to change. We’ll continue to do our best to share changes as we make them. As we move forward, you’ll begin to see these new paid packs release on console closer to the dates they release for PC/Mac, though not at the same time.

Thank you for continuing to play The Sims and sharing your passion with us. We can’t overstate how much we appreciate each and every one of you.
