Post When is the next announcement?
Feels like there should have been an announcement for the next game pack or even expansion pack.

Is EA finally giving up on The Sims 4?

Get Together only came out on Dec. 8, which is 4 months ago. In past games, EPs came out every 6 months. It seemed like they released a few things really close together so I'm not surprised that there isn't anything new yet. I don't think they've given up; I assume the next EP will likely be announced in the next month, two at the most.

I don't think we can expect this to be the next EP but there is apparently a Sims 4 Pets survey going around!

But they usually announce an game/expansion pack weeks/months before release. It just seems odd that there weren't even hints besides that survey. Plus how could you do horses in a game so limited like The Sims 4? It made sense for the third game since it had an open world.

A couple of teasers (Tweets from Sim Gurus) have been released about the next pack - no idea if it is a Stuff, Game, or Expansion pack:

Teaser #1: Feb. 15, 2016

Teaser #2: April 12, 2016

Apparently the best guess so far is that it's maybe a game pack that introduces restaurants.

I knew about the restaurant game pack rumors.

It's greatly needed.

But these links you posted were from last February whereas it is now April.

Shouldn't there have been something of credit released by now?

Spoke too soon, apparently, some news from SimsVIP indicates an official teaser was released.

More of a teaser than an announcement... https://twitter.com/TheSims/status/722454882544824320

Reddit users are speculating that since EA Play is coming up in June, that is when they will announce the next EP.

I'm happy about restaurants being added to the game but the Kids Stuff Pack (at least that's what it looks like) doesn't interest me. Stuff Packs rarely do.

Kids need more content in Sims games. They almost never have enough things to do.
Sims 4 managed to make them even more interesting to play.

But they are still the second most overlooked age group next to elders.

I totally agree with you, kids need more content. If the Stuff Pack includes things like allowing kids to play with each other (such as playing tag or Cops and Robbers) then I would buy that. More toys and decor and beds don't interest me. I guess I'll have to wait and see what exactly the pack includes.

Are you seriously getting your hopes up? The stuff pack would most likely be like the others. 1 or a few new premium items for new gameplay, loads of decorative objects, and maybe a new radio station or two. I guess there could be some new interactions, but I heard the garden pack barely had much of anything.

Lol, nope I'm not getting my hopes up. I've been playing the Sims long enough to know that low or no expectations is best when it comes to EA. :meh: I fully expect to be disappointed! :laugh:
