Domain registration suggests that The Sims 5 is on its way

Hello Sims fans! We have some exciting news for you today. We’ve recently discovered something that’s worth sharing, to say the least.

A new BIG hint suggests that The Sims 5 is on its way!

Most of you are probably not familiar with the tool Whois. This is a free tool that tells more about who is owning specific domain names.

We’ve recently did some research, and it turns out that Electronic Arts Inc. (a.k.a EA) has registered the official domain name for the fifth generation: TheSims5.com! What’s more, is that they’ve recently updated the registration, something that needs to be done each year.

Now you’re probably wondering: What on earth does this mean?

Well, it shows that it’s likely that Electronic Arts is planning on launching an official website for The Sims 5, just like they did with earlier generations. It also suggests that they are working on the next generation for real! That’s some exciting news, right?

We’ve also compared the registration details for TheSims4.com, and it shows the exact same details. It’s owned by Electronic Arts Inc. with its headquarters in Redwood City, California.

At the moment, there is no official release date information yet, but we’ll let you know when we know more!

Is The Sims 5 actually coming soon?

Is The Sims 5 actually coming soon? According to PlayStation Magazine, it will. Here are some release details for PlayStation 5 (PS5)

You may have noticed that there are rumors about The Sims 5 popping up all over the place. Many of them are just fake news. Sometimes we come across something that may not be fake. Our colleagues at Sims Community shared some very interesting news about the fifth generation!

PlayStation Magazine UK, the official PlayStation magazine, came up with a list of games that are expected to be released in the future. The interesting thing is that they have also listed ‘The Sims 5’, as you can see on the image below:

According to the magazine, the game will come to PlayStation 5 (PS5), as can be seen on page 29. However, this doesn’t mean that it will not be launched on PC, Mac, Xbox Series X or possible other platforms. PlayStation Magazine also mentions that Maxis and The Sims Studio will be responsible for developing the game and that Electronic Arts is the publisher.

According to PlayStation Magazine, we have to wait a bit more for the official release of the game, as it shows that it will take 12 months or more. They didn’t list an official release date, but it’s quite sure that it will not happen in 2020.

Usually there is about a year between the official announcement and the actual release of a new Sims generation. This would mean that the fifth generation will not be launched before the summer of 2021, simply because there hasn’t been an official announcement yet.

PlayStation Magazine also shared that The Sims 5 will include online features, such as interactions and competitions. This seems to be correct, as the CEO of Electronic Arts, Andrew Wilson, shared earlier in 2020 that the fifth installment will contain elements that are based on The Sims Online. Unfortunately, this game was shut down in 2008. But… maybe there is a chance that it will return?

For now, we just have to wait for the official announcement of the game by Electronic Arts and Maxis!
