POSSIBLE LEAK: The Sims 4 Rental Houses Expansion Pack

Sims 4 Leak

Before we continue talking about The Sims 4 Rental Houses that has seemingly surfaced on the web, it’s important to give a disclaimer. This post is purely based on speculation for now and contains no official confirmation as of yet. All image assets shown below are recreated for listing purposes.

Spotted by the eagle-eyed @TheHenfordHen, we may well be seeing the option for our Sims to become landlords in the near future. The unofficial listing seems to hint that the 15th expansion pack could well be focused around rental houses and appropriately named The Sims 4 Rental Houses.

There’s a Release Date for The Sims 4 Rental Houses

We’ve been informed about this latest leak via social media and it looks as though the upcoming release has been revealed by Instant Gaming again. Currently, the release date is set for 8th, December 2023. Again this information is currently unconfirmed and speculation until we have an official announcement.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Instant Gaming leak an upcoming pack, in fact, the same thing happened for The Sims 4 Horse Ranch!

The Sims 4 Rental Houses Pack: Potential Leak

At the time of writing, Instant Gaming was the only site to be listing “The Sims 4 Rental Houses Expansion Pack” on their site. With only a placeholder box art and release date. We are yet to find out any information about potential features.

Placeholder Box Art for the Possible Upcoming Expansion Pack

It’s important to note as well that this also isn’t confirmed official box art for the new expansion pack. As we have seen in previous pack leaks, the images can created using player-made content or even assets from previous games.

Update: Since originally posting, it has been discovered that the build featured in the placeholder box art is actually from a player-made build.

The build was originally shared on Reddit two years ago by Oreyt. This information was discovered by X/Twitter user @thilseycrossing. The villa was created in The Sims 4 My Wedding Stories world of Tartosa is actually a wedding venue but can also be a rental lot!

The Sims 4 Rental Houses: Speculation

Since the release of the current roadmap, players have been speculating about what the upcoming expansion could be focused on.


Even upon the release of the roadmap back in September, players were discussing the potential that the expansion could have a focus on apartments, owning secondary homes or maybe even more community-based, neighbourly gameplay. Additionally, players spotted more details with the elephant kettle and food items that could well be a hint towards the kind of world we may see.

What do you think some of the new features could be in the new expansion pack? What about the new world, what could it look like? We’re sure many players will have plenty of questions about this rumoured The Sims 4 Rental Houses expansion pack. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

What about the release date and features?

As previously stated, the speculated release date on Instant Gaming is the 8th of December 2023. This will likely be the same across PC, Mac, Xbox and PlayStation. Instant Gaming still has no mention of features.

Can we trust the latest leaks?

We recommend that you take this speculation and listings with a grain of salt. There are a few times when these websites could predict a Sims 4 release in advance. There are examples especially with Instant Gaming when they broke the news about The Sims 4 going free. They were also responsible for the name leaks of Sims 4 Island Living and Cottage Living Expansions. (Tip from @TheBoyXp)

With this information starting to leak out, it’s only a matter of time until The Sims makes an official announcement. Hopefully, it won’t be too much longer now!

You can stay tuned on the latest Sims 4 News to be the first to know if this speculation gets debunked!
