Recently there was a solid clue about the coming of The Sims 5 game. During an investor conference call, Andrew Wilson, EA CEO, was asked about the possibility of launching a The Sims focused on online interaction, according to the community of fans of the title.
The Sims will turn 20, recalls the CEO of EA Games
Andrew, before answering a question asked about the next successor to The Sims, recalled that the franchise is close to completing its twentieth anniversary. During this period, game developers tend to meet the diverse needs that EA seeks to offer players, but generally not something focused on "social interaction and competition". This aspect is likely to change in the continuation of the series.
The president of Eletronic Arts says:
"While Maxis continues to think about The Sims for a new generation – cross platforms and a cloud in a neighborhood world, you must imagine while our inspiration, escape, creation, self-improvement, motivations – that this notion of social interactions and competition, like the kind of thing that was really present at The Sims Online for many years – that they will begin to become part of The Sims experience in the coming years.
We are very excited. This is a game that really has no competition in its category to offer and fulfill these motivations for players, and we think about the tremendous growth opportunities for us in the years to come. "
According to the interview with EA CEO, he suggested that social interactions and competitions between players will be part of an important project in the future for The Sims. However, don't expect it to be a real MMO like The Sims Online, but keep in mind that everything is connected in some way. Perhaps the Destiny-style social zones and the chance to invite your friends' characters into your home? a hypothesis.
Until the launch of The Sims 5, players will still be able to enjoy what is being done in The Sims 4 by EA and Maxis. Recently, for example, there was the launch of the Tiny Living Stuff pack.
