Since EA Games made it official that The Sims 5 was being made, fans of the popular simulation series have been wondering what the next game will be like. What platforms will The Sims 5 be available on is one of the most important questions for the community.
The Sims 5 doesn’t have an official name or release date yet, which makes it hard to figure out some details about the highly anticipated game. However, Sims fans who are waiting for information can still get some answers.
The Sims 5 Release Date
There is no official date yet for when The Sims 5 will be out. But based on how The Sims 4 is being made right now, it seems likely that the game won’t be out on consoles or PCs for a while.
CCN reported that EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that the next version of The Sims was already in the pre-production phase during the company’s financial briefing in January 2020.

So, in terms of a real release date, this could mean that the game could come out as soon as 2022. Most of the time, games in the series come out first on PC, then on consoles like the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch.
Since The Sims 3 came out in 2009 and The Sims 4 came out in 2014, this is the longest we’ve gone between games in the series.

What is The Sims 5 going to be about?
Simmers may expect more “social engagement and competitiveness” in the upcoming game, which has yet to be announced.
On January 30th, 2020, EA CEO Andrew Wilson stated that the next Sims game might have both single-player and multiplayer components. He went on to say that the forthcoming game will include aspects from the now-defunct The Sims Online.
If you think about the future of The Sims and how it will evolve over the years, you should expect to see a lot more social interactions and competition, like the kind of things that were really there in The Sims Online many years ago.”
He said, “We’re really looking forward to that. In our opinion, there is no other video game in its category that can provide or satisfy these kinds of player incentives in the same way as this one, and we see this as a significant growth opportunity for us for many years.”
Will you be able to play The Sims 5 on your phone?
Speculations of cross-platform play between the console and mobile versions of The Sims 5 have been floating around the internet. As of now, EA hasn’t commented on the possibility of such a thing happening. Although The Sims has a mobile version, it is unlikely that you will be able to play the full edition of The Sims on a mobile device very soon.
