The Sims 5 Release Date and Platform Compatibility

Fans of The Sims franchise are on edge ever since the first rumor about The Sims 5 was posted online. Gamers are excited about the upcoming game, and some details made their way online, which only fueled the flames.

Here’s what is known (so far):

Release Date

The Sims 5 is under development at the moment. It’s believed that it most likely won’t be released this season. Estimates say that the earliest we can expect to see The Sims 5 get released is 2021. Still, no official details about the release date were published.

Platform Compatibility

Some rumors suggest that the upcoming Sims game will be a PC exclusive. However, we believe that EA and Maxis won’t miss the opportunity of benefiting from the success of the next generation of gaming consoles to make the game available to a more massive market. The Sims 5 will probably not be released for the PS4 and Xbox One, mainly because of technical limitations. Still, playing The Sims on a controller isn’t exactly comfortable.


Admittedly, The Sims 5 will be a popular game and an instant best-seller. The Sims 4 is already impressive, so it’s hard to picture what they can add to make it even better.

For starters, the graphics will undoubtedly be improved and optimized for the newest hardware.

Some say that The Sims 5 will have an advanced story mode that will make the experience even more immersive.

One thing is sure – The developers won’t disappoint the community. They simply can’t. The franchise is too big and popular to take any risks, so they are taking so long to release the next game.

Also, The Sims 4 is still selling quite well, including DLCs. That is important because development funds for new games come from the profit generated by current games.

To sum it up, if you want to see The Sims 5 released sooner, play The Sims 4!
