The next “The Sims” game, Project Rene, first look revealed by EA

The Sims Project Rene

During the “Behind the Sims” event, Electronic Arts showed off Project Rene. The game will come after “The Sims 4” and set up the franchise for the next 10 years.

The next game in one of Electronic Arts’ most popular series, The Sims, has been shown for the first time. The company used its Behind The Sims Summit event to talk about Project Rene, which is the code name for the game that will come after The Sims 4. Even though the game hasn’t been made yet, EA showed off some features that show what kind of game they plan to make.

Vice President of Creative Franchise Lyndsay Pearson said that they are working on the next version of The Sims for the next ten years. The new game will focus on teamwork and can be played on more than one platform. Electronic Arts is moving toward a model like Minecraft, where people can play on phones, consoles, and other devices.

This is the future of The Sims, built on charming Sims, powerful tools, and meaningful stories.

Lyndsay Pearson, Vice President, said

The creative vice president said that they are putting together a group of developers who will work with The Sims 4 and The Sims Mobile teams. “Today is the beginning of our journey through the years to come as we work on the next installment and creative platform,” she said. Pearson said that they chose the name “Project Rene” because it means “renewal” or “rebirth,” which is a promise to make The Sims new again.

The Sims 5 will offer new collaboration tools

EA says that the same team is building on the same parts of The Sims.. This made it so popular for so many years. Even though the game won’t be out for years, Pearson showed off the changes to the creative tools. Also, gave a sneak peek at the cross-platform feature. “With Project Rene, Simmers will be able to play alone or with others on any device that supports it,” he said.

EA has promised to share information about Project Rene over the next two years. The idea is to give sneak peeks to the community and give users access to a preview version. Pearson said that they don’t usually talk about games that won’t come out for many years. However, The Sims is an exception.

Before the presentation was over, Pearson made it clear that the scenes were from an early version of the game. Project Rene is The Sims’ plan for the next 10 years. So it’s possible that EA is betting on a free-to-play model that works on multiple platforms. The company made millions of dollars from free games like Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, and now The Sims 4.

Even though Project Rene is still a few years away and there is a dedicated team. EA has no plans to put The Sims 4 on hold. The 2014 game has 12 add-ons and dozens of game packs with different themes and items, such as Star Wars. The company makes close to $500,000 a year from the Sims franchise. This is perhaps the most important reason why it made The Sims 4 a free-to-play game.
