The much-awaited The Sims 5 was rumored to arrive on the market soon. However, a release date was never confirmed, but the EA and Maxis did take their time to give us a few hints. Even more, a little bit of teasing here and there regarding the upcoming The Sim installment emerged on the Internet.
Maxis Canceled The Monthly Stream For March 2020
The reason we believe that The Sims 5 is on the way is that the team has announced that there will be no more updates for the previous version of the game, as the next expansion for The Sims 4 has been canceled. Therefore, the users won’t receive the patch for March 2020.
The company’s move to cancel the next patch has raised lots of speculations regarding the possibility of The Sims 5 version of the life simulation video game. This news is making fans very excited! I must say, I am one of the fans, too. Without further ado, here’s the real reason why the company decided to cancel the upcoming game update.
@SimGuruFrost, the game’s global community manager, shared with the world the fact that the patch for March is withdrawn. He posted a message on his Twitter page that says: “There will be no Maxis Monthly in March, I wonder if there will be any update for.” EA would typically release a new patch every month.
However, the situation is different this month. This is the reason why all the speculations started. Fans start talking about the possibility of an upcoming version of the game. The fans are also wondering if they will receive a new patch for Sims 4 in the forthcoming weeks.
The Sims 5 Release Date Might Still Be Far Away
The fans’ curiosity wasn’t answered yet. Although there is no patch available for this month, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be none for April 2020. As the rumors keep circulating the Internet more and more, fans are actually expecting an upcoming version of the life simulation video game.
We still need to remain realistic, though. Just because the Maxis Monthly for this month has been canceled, it doesn’t mean that The Sims 5 will just pop out of nowhere. There is no confirmation of the upcoming installment in the series yet, and it doesn’t mean that the game is ready to launch.
The real reason why the patch for March was canceled is due to the coronavirus outbreak. The Sims 5 is on the way. However, the virus is an impediment for a large number of people to gather in one place. EA shared that the health authorities have instructed them not to hold any events.
