Many Simmers would be expecting a new patch to be released this month but sadly no patch will be released this month.
SimGuruKate over at Twitter confirmed this by releasing a tweet over at her Twitter account that told Console and PC/Mac Simmers that there will be no patches coming this month. Here is what she had to say:
I think it got lost in all the conversation over the last 24 hours, but I can confirm that there will be no patch for TS4 on PC/Mac or Console for the month of January.
