When is The Sims 5 Coming Out

This year it will be eight years since the release of The Sims 4, back in 2014. Since then, the game has received eleven expansion packs, eleven game packs, eighteen stuff packs, and eleven kits. And while the game’s developers, studio Maxis, continue enriching the experience with fresh content, including the latest Werewolves Game Pack, fans are still eager to learn when will we finally get a chance to play the fifth mainline instalment.

And to put it quite frankly, nothing official has been revealed yet in regards to The Sims 5 release date. The good news is that we know The Sims 5 is officially in development. Electronic Arts officially announced the development in April 2020. Since then, little has been shared about the next Sims game. What we do know, based on previous statements from EA CEO Andrew Wilson, is that The Sims 5 could have more multiplier features. This includes a bigger focus on “social interactions and competition”.

So, The Sims 5 is in development, but when will come out? Our estimation is that it will most likely release during the 2023 Holiday season. That is, November or December of 2023. Keep in mind that The Sims 4 is still earning a tremendous amount of money for EA, approximately $462 Million annually, according to Nielsen Super Data. This means that EA is definitely not in a rush to release The Sims 5, and they will give Maxis as much time as they need to develop the next Sims game. When it finally releases, we think that it will be available on all major platforms simultaneously, including Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
