The Sims 4 to come EARLY 2014

Update: Maxis has announced that The Sims 4 will be released in the fall of 2014

We found confirmation that gives an approximate date for the release of The Sims 4! Early 2014. Today was the Electronic Arts Q4 2013 Earnings Conference Call in which they talk about what is coming in the near future for their stockholders. There is one very interesting sentence in this report:

    • You sure, like SimCity for Mac, EA has to pull back the released version of it from July to August, and I bet they won’t make that mistake again!
