Sims 4 Content Releases 2024

EA’s latest report for the next Fiscal Year promises over a dozen of Sims 4 releases.

The Sims 4 series is far from over. With the game turning a decade since its original release in 2014, the publisher Electronic Arts is very sure about its bright future.

The latest Financial Report from EA has disclosed a little about what to expect in the next 12 months. More specifically, how many content releases are in store for us until April 2025.

The Sims 4 doubles down on Active Players

EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson has shared the current statistics of the game’s player base, and how much The Sims 4’s community has expanded over the last 12 months. From April 2023 until April 2024, the game managed to double down on its active player base. Surpassing over 85 million players actively playing the game.

The passion of the Sims community remains strong as the franchise powers toward its 25th anniversary. Since its launch in 2014, The Sims 4 has surpassed 85 million players, with FY24 up double digits year over year. The Sims Online and The Sims Mobile, combined have been downloaded over 500 million times. This is already one of the largest communities in the world, and we believe this hugely successful franchise has the potential to become one of the largest creator platforms in entertainment. An early proof point of the platform’s evolution is the hundreds of millions of user generated content items that were shared in this fiscal year.

With 3 Expansion Pack releases, the return of Stuff Packs and almost a dozen of Kits its no wonder that the series managed to both retain and entertain its player base.

The Future of The Sims 4

Although Andrew Wilson didn’t specify the exact types of content and Packs coming to the game in the future, he did put it under a vague umbrella of “Content Updates” in EA’s earning release. Stating that Sims 4 players should expect more than 15 content updates in the next 12 months.

Looking ahead, we are committed to entertaining and inspiring our loyal and engaged Sims 4 fans through over 15 content updates over the coming year, while working on multiple experiences in the Sims universe to leverage user generated content to deepen our community and expand our audience.

A Sims player might think that a “content update” in this context could relate to Free Base Game feature and content updates. However, those free updates usually are accompanied with Packs and Kit releases alongside. Plus, the professional jargon in this earnings statement sounds more like its enthused about putting out over 15 releases of paid content rather than free.

Time will tell what the number ratio of Packs vs Kits releases is going to be within this rough estimate. If it’s going to be anything like the last year, we’re in for a treat!

Nothing has been stated around The Sims 5 (Project Rene) this time around. Hopefully EA is keeping the news a surprise for their next Behind The Sims livestream!
