The Sims 5: Frequently Asked Questions

The Sims 5 F.A.Q.

What is the new game that the team is working on?

The team has begun to work on the next generation of The Sims, currently known as Project Rene. Fans can expect big innovations in how they can customize and create their worlds. How Sims will behave and think. And how players can share the favorite ways they play with their friends across their favorite devices. 

Why the name Project Rene?

We chose Project Rene because it is reminiscent of words like renaissance, and rebirth. And represents our renewed commitment to The Sims. That’s what we’re doing, ushering in a new future for The Sims with a new game experience and more.

What will Project Rene include at launch that will meet player expectations?

We can’t talk too much just yet about what you can expect during launch, but are keeping player feedback top of mind throughout the early stages of Project Rene’s development. We’re striving to go above and beyond in terms of transparency and creating opportunities for players to share their thoughts about what we’re creating over the next few years.

Will Project Rene be a single player experience, or will there be a multiplayer option?

Players will have the choice to play a single player experience or collaborate with others through online multiplayer across supported devices. 

When will Project Rene be released?

The game is currently in its very early stages of development. We’ll have more to share over the coming years.

Does this mean that there will be no more content for The Sims 4?

The Sims 4 is not going away anytime soon. The team has been dedicated to expanding on the game for the past 8 years, and are as committed as ever to developing new and meaningful experiences for players and will continue to develop and release The Sims 4 packs, Kits and Sims Delivery Express drops in the foreseeable future.
