The Sims 5 game is in demand since the last six years and EA is still providing new updates to The Sims 4 gameplay. There was a recent online petition with more than 86,000 signatures asking EA and Maxis to fix and improve the skin tone and hairstyle options in TS4 game.
The Sims 5 needs :
– Colorwheel (skin, hair, build/buy)
– Open worlds
– A full game at launch (including pools and toddlers)
Actually, what the sims 3 did… ELEVEN years ago?
I like the sims 4 but… since we're going back in time, could we do it again?

The developers responded to the demands and have promised authentic and respectful inclusion in the upcoming fall update. It has led to predictions that what does it means for The Sims 5 release date, will EA and Maxis give out an update for the next title too after so many fans are demanding the same.
EA Promises The Sims 4 Skin Tones and Hairstyle Updates
EA has responded to the change.org petition titled “A Color Wheel and More Skintones for The Sims 4” after it garnered more than 86,000 signatures in just a couple of months. Lyndsay Pearson, The Sims general manager and executive producer talked about the petition on his Twitter and accepted that they have not done enough to offer a wide variety of skin tones and hairstyles on “The Sims 4.”
I want to acknowledge your concerns about the variety of skin tones represented in The Sims 4 & I have some updates from the team to share. pic.twitter.com/Nzeg8VwllS

SimGuruLyndsay promised to provide more color options this year, address the current skin tones issues and improve the blotchy artifacts and ashy tones. All the changes will be provided in “The Sims 4” fall update which is coming out this year.
The Sims 5 Release Date after TS4 Updates
The Sims 5 release date could be further delayed after the new updates have been announced for The Sims 4. The current game’s life cycle is surely now increased and it means fans will have to wait for more time to see the fifth Sims game in action. EA and Maxis are yet to confirm that The Sims 5 is in development and the recent TS4 updates are also not helping.
