3 months ago we reported on the previous Quarter for Fiscal Year 2019 where Andrew Wilson, EA’s CEO has stated that The Sims Franchise would be getting over 20 content drops in Fiscal Year 2020. In case you don’t know, EA’s Fiscal Year 2020 begins in April 2019 and ends in April 2020.
However, their latest report for their Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019 includes an interesting statement, saying that, not only will they be delivering active content for BOTH Console, Mobile and PC but that The Sims 4 alone will be getting those 20 content drops over the next 12 months! This could include pack releases, big content updates and pack releases for console.
Here’s everything they’ve stated regarding The Sims Franchise and The Sims 4 in general:
- As we wrap up FY19, I also want to highlight the continued success of The Sims 4, which has grown every year since we launched. We launched three new content packs and multiple game updates for our Sims 4 community throughout the year, all of which contributed to a 35% year over-year increase in active players and our strongest year of engagement yet for this ongoing live service. The passion of our Sims community is incredible, and we look forward to bringing them many more great experiences in the year ahead.
- We expect live services to grow 10% to 15%, led by Apex Legends, FIFA Ultimate Team and The Sims 4.
- We will add over 20 different content drops for The Sims 4.
- Fans of Battlefield V, The Sims 4, and Anthem will have more great content and new ways to play in the year ahead.
