The Sims 5 will not be developed if The Sims 4 will not appear to be successful. That is what the producer of The Sims 4, Grant Rodiek,states on the forum of The Sims 4.
‘We will not work on The sims 5’
Meanwhile, the forum post has been deleted, but Rodiek’s quote was saved: “We will not work on The Sims 5. We do not think about The Sims 5. If The Sims 4 will not be successful, there willnot become a new The Sims 5 game”. He responded to The Sims fans that were sharing ideas about a potential new game in the series of The Sims.
Criticism The Sims 4
The Sims 4 has been receiving more criticism than previous games. Features that were included in previous games, such as toddlers and pools, were not in The Sims 4. Nevertheless, the sales of the game seem to go just as well as those of the previous games.
