The Sims 5, codenamed Project Rene, has been officially announced as being in the very early stages of development. EA has kept fans waiting for quite a while, with the last sims game, The Sims 4, having launched way back in 2014 and receiving quite a few expansion packs since then. But what are The Sims 5 Platforms? Where will you be able to play the new game in the series, revealed at a recent sims summit?

For years, people have wondered what the next generation of the sims series could look like, and now we not only know what it’ll look like, but we also know vaguely what platforms it’ll be on and how it’ll be across platforms.

What Platforms Will The Sims 5 Be On?

While there’s no official word of exactly what platforms to expect the game on, the assumption is that like previous games in the series, we’ll be getting the game on:

  • Xbox 
  • PC
  • PlayStation

That’s almost all major consoles!

Unlike previous games in the series though, there’s the potential for us to get the franchise on mobile devices and the Nintendo Switch. The reveal of the game spoke about how we can expect a unified experience across different devices, showing the exact same game world running on a mobile device. As usual, they’ll likely be numerous game packs available to increase the amount of content available in the game, with less in the base game, making The Sims 5 more of a creative platform and a footboard for the new generation to jump off. A renaissance. Or a Simanassiance, if you will. The start of our journey into this brand-new world. 

It’s likely the game will be a cloud-enabled world, especially if they want to unify the sims experience across the PC version of the game and every single other version. This would also mean that The Sims is now a cross-platform title and that not only is your creativity limitless, but you’ll be potentially able to play The Sims online from the comfort of your own sofa. 

When Did Sims 4 Release?

The Sims 4 was released back in September 2014, developed by Electronic Arts and Maxis Studios, leaving fans aching for a new game in the series, a rebirth, for years. Sims fans and the Sims community are beside themselves with excitement for this new game, as we are here. Personally, I’d love the next game in The Sims series to be multiplayer, though we likely won’t know anything about that until we see a gameplay trailer. The reveal this October was a very early reveal, so it could be a while until we see anything else from the game, or about any new sims games.
