This will include The Sims 4 on both PC/Mac and Consoles and also both The Sims Mobile and The Sims Freeplay. Here is what he had to say:
- As we wrap up FY19, I also want to highlight the continued success of The Sims 4, which has grown every year since we launched. We launched three new content packs and multiple game updates for our Sims 4 community throughout the year, all of which contributed to a 35% year over-year increase in active players and our strongest year of engagement yet for this ongoing live service. The passion of our Sims community is incredible, and we look forward to bringing them many more great experiences in the year ahead.
- We expect live services to grow 10% to 15%, led by Apex Legends, FIFA Ultimate Team and The Sims 4.
- We will add over 20 different content drops for The Sims 4.
- Fans of Battlefield V, The Sims 4, and Anthem will have more great content and new ways to play in the year ahead.
This is very exciting news and we hope you are just excited for what the next year for The Sims 4, The Sims Mobile and The Sims FreePlay has to hold.
