There have been many discussions on The Sims 5’s release date over the last years. So far, no release date has been confirmed by Electronic Arts or Maxis. Is it impossible to say when The Sims 5 is coming? Perhaps not! Sims fansite DownloadSims5.com made a clever calculation, which can be found in their article: What is the release date for The Sims 5?
The article shows that each Sims generation (The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 3 and The Sims 4) lasts for about 58 months. The Sims 4, the fourth generation, was released in September 2014. Adding 58 months to this could mean that The Sims 5 will be released in July 2019. However, as the fansite stated, it is not very likely that Sims games will be released in the middle of the summer. Therefore, it is more likely that the game will come between July and September 2019.
Once again, we have to wait for an official confirmation!
