TimeLine of The Sims

We hoped and kind of expected a The Sims 4 Announcement today we prepared this The Sims TimeLine from The Sims 1 announcement to the upcoming release of The Sims 4. (Not on scale!)



Some times we can note:

Between the Sims 2 announcement and The Sims 2 Release there were two The Sims Expansion Packs

Between The Sims 3 announcement and release of it there were two Stuff Packs and one Expansion Pack

Between The Sims 4 announcement and the release there will be at least two expansion packs and one stuff pack that we know of right now!

  1. And if you’re playing with the release dates, you can see that “The Sims 1” and “The Sims 2” lasted +/- 4 years and an half.
    With that point of view we could expect “The Sims 4” for the 1st quarter of 2014 😉

    But, it’s just speculation 😛

    • 1st quarter of 2014 would be very good for my super impatient quality. Then we can enjoy the future pack and from there go to Sims 4 😀

      Of course, The Sims 3 did get delayed by a few months, that can still happen. I remember the OUTRAGE when that happened in Feb. 2009

  2. Great overview and a good idea – it is really nice to see what we can historically expect from EA when they announce a new version of the game.

  4. I think that The Sims 4 will be in September 2014. Look at the dates of first announcements and releases. Between announcement and release TS2 there is one and 1/4 of year. With The Sims 3 is the same.

  5. I’m guessing Sims 4 should be around late February or early March.
