'The Sims 4' PS4 and Xbox One release date this year?


Rumor has it that the long awaited console version of the hit simulation game “The Sims 4” might come this year; however, other sources point out that the game may not be coming to the consoles anytime soon.

According to reports, Electronic Arts’ presentation at the recently held Electronic Entertainment Expo 2016 did not include an announcement for the console version for “The Sims 4.” This led to fans speculating that the game might not be coming this year after all though there are still some who cling on to the hope that somehow and some way, the console port of the game would be announced sometime around fall this year, possibly in September.

One of the reasons pointed out was that game developer Maxis and publisher Electronic Arts might be having problems in porting the game for the console, or perhaps in light of announcements of new console variants both from Microsoft and Sony the reason could be that the developer is also waiting for the arrival of the new consoles, specifically the Xbox Project Scorpio and the PlayStation 4 Neo.

Should this prove to be true, advanced graphics will be one of the key features of the game, reaching up to a resolution of 4K Ultra HD the highest resolution out in the market today.

Another reason pointed out as to why Maxis and Electronic Arts might not opt to release a console version of “The Sims 4” anytime soon is that they are still waiting for the game to be fully complete that is, they are still allegedly waiting for the time when the PC version of the game has already received all of its downloadable content (DLC). This decision is reportedly to ensure that the console version would experience less bugs, as much as possible, rather than face issues with releasing new content to the consoles in stages.
