The Sims 5 is one of the most anticipated games out there for which fans of the life-simulation series title are eagerly waiting. EA and Maxis are definitely working on the next installment, even though they have not admitted it to the public. The Sims 4 is one of the best-selling EA titles and hence they would gladly work on TS5 in advance to capture the future market.
There are also reports that TS4 is coming on the Nintendo Switch console and it would mean that next Sims game would also arrive for the handheld console. Here are more details on “The Sims 5” release date, compatibility rumors, and whether EA will make sure that next Sims installment runs on the Nintendo Switch console.
The Sims 5 will run on Nintendo Switch Console
EA has yet not made it clear whether the current Sims game or even the upcoming Sims 5 will run on Nintendo Switch console, but the recent developments are indications that it might happen soon. It was announced in the EA Play Live last month that seven of the EA IPs are arriving for the Switch console within this year.
Apex Legends and Burnout Paradise: Remastered are few of the EA titles that will be playable on the Nintendo Switch, where fans are hoping that The Sims 4 will also arrive on the handheld console. EA would receive a lot of praise if they manage to bring in TS4 on Nintendo Switch, even though the expansion, game, and stuff pack sizes are too large. It would mean that The Sims 5 will also be playable on the Nintendo Switch hybrid portable console.
EA and Maxis Updates on The Sims 5 Release Date
The Sims 5 release date should not be that far away as it has been seven years since the last Sims title came out. EA and Maxis are totally mum on the development of TS5 and it means that it is either in very early stages or has not started yet.
If The Sims 4 has taught the community anything, it’d be to withhold caution before investing into a game still in development; I predict The Sims 5 will have a hard time launching for this reason. There will need to be ample gameplay footage so we know exactly what we’re buying.

Fans were hoping that EA would announce The Sims 5 title at the EA Play Live 2020 but that doesn’t happen. The Sims 5 release date can now be announced at the EA Play Live 2021 and the game could be out within a few years.
