Maxis, the development studio behind The Sims 4 and other previous sims titles, has rebranded. Via their website, they share a brand new logo, artwork, layout, and much more. Many simmers, including myself, wonder if this rebrand has any correlation with the next-generation sims title (The Sims 5) or The Sims 4 wrapping up in its production with DLC.
We are long overdue for the next-generation sims game. The lifespan of The Sims 1-3 was roughly 4-5 years with The Sims 4 being the outlier with almost 8 years of content being released. The Sims team shows no signs of stopping as Kits continue to be released at an alarming rate.
A few years ago, the sims team also announced that there were several more years of content planned. Even though it’s been a few years since this was announced, it’s very possible we might have another year or so until The Sims 5 begins rolling out.
It has previously been confirmed that the next generation sims game does in fact exist. Since games take years to develop, even though we don’t know when it could be released, I’m sure it’s in development as this is written.
Could this rebrand mean that The Sims 5 is around the corner or that The Sims 4 will wrap up in production in terms of DLC releases?
