    I hope it'll be sometime in May. Everybody thinks there's going to be a new one coming out in June, so this makes sense if that's true.

    Well it's clearly not witches because it's not a gamepack, it has to be island vacation EP or university, otherwise, the community will be furious..

    It could still be Themeparks or a Romance Pack. Their always surprising us but I have a feeling it s Tropical.

    I would be happy with any of these two. I really like Island Paradise, but I haven't ever played a University pack so I'm excited to see how it is!

    Wild parties,new woohoos,keg drinking,dares,sororities and fraternitys,studying for exams and graduation,places to hangout etc.

    That means the person who wrote a post deleted the post in a thread.

    I have to add to the vote for either a Tropical Island EP or university ( I think university pips it for me), I'm hoping its something where teenagers as a life stage comes into its own (but we'll see) :)
    Look for my lot creations on the gallery luckylady88 ;)

    Themeparks seems possible but not much requested as university or Tropical/island pack, romance pack is also possible but it'd be weird releasing it in the beginning of summer..

    I have a fear EA will do something dumb again and release a dumb pack like StrangerVille because they want to please people who wants something *new* completely ignoring people who are dying for years for new occult or university

    There is no proof that witches are coming in a game packThey could come in an expansion pack.

    When do they announce or tease packs? (the day)
    Is there even a certain day where trailers come out?

    I can totally see a trailer comming arround the last 2 weeks of may. 20-31may
    then EA promo + second trailer at E3.
    A month after the trailer= the Expansion with the 64 bit update.

    Gosh, so much is happening in the next month, my head is spinning. Since EA Play is scheduled for June 8th and 9th, and the Game Changers have been invited to attend, I suspect an expansion will be announced the week before, probably around June 1st. As usual, there is much speculation about the theme of the EP. Only natural since a new EP is always exciting to think about. Summer is almost here for many of us, and if EA follows its usual pattern of releasing content that is pertinent to the season, my guess is this expansion will be a new tropical world with water activities and the ability to own/manage resorts along with a new career such as a marine biologist.

    But this is EA we're talking about, and they have been known to do the unexpected without any prior notice. If the Game Changers weren't going to EA Play, I wouldn't be as sure as I am there is an EP coming in June. We will probably see a short teaser shortly before the end of May. After EA Play there will be a three or four day embargo on information from the Game Changers that attended the event. Then the Game Changers will be given an early access pass so they can play the EP and broadcast what they are allowed to share with their viewers. That places us in mid-June so a release date of June 20th or June21st is probably not that far-fetched.

    I think the Next Expansion will be announced in May. Hopefully within 2 weeks.

    If they did Witches alone, they're too small for an expansion, they'll come as a gamepack like vampires, unless it's a magic EP where witches are just part of the features..
    But this seems unlikely..

    Doubt it, if it’s an EP it won’t just be witches.

    Vacations are also a gp now - don't forget that. GPs have one subject - ep/s have various subject in Sims 4 with a few big ideas. Other wise JA and OR got cheated as far as vacations go if tropical vacation was an ep.

    Now they could make it Tropical living for year round so it would not be a vacation spot.

    I'd say if we get witches it would be gp style as the devs said that when we were voting on twitter last year on future supernaturals - that it would only be fair to give it as good a treatment as Vamps got. So they would not say that, if that was not the plan. Whats more all the voters agreed. There were huge numbers of votes too. Lots of people want Witches at least as good as Vamps.

    My guess is It won't be a Supernatural pack seeing our actual team did not make the Sims 3 supernatural - the Special second store team over in Salt lake City did - but EA stopped using the Salt Lake City studio for pc and a store, and let everyone go or moved to other EA games.

    Tropical though has more stuff.

    Didn't they say there would be no new content at EA Play but Lyndsay and Duke would be there. It was after Lyndsay talked about the free tickets for EA Play during the Maxis Monthly yesterday - almost at the end.

    Game changers, Influencers, and what they called them before this name - have always attended the shows in June and August and they did not always give us new things or trailers. I saw indications they were doing interviews and Q & A's - and sharing ideas and such - but Lyndsay sure sounded to me like they were revealing but maybe bits and pieces. Like that Black door apparently indicating we were getting more swatches. From what I could see - unless it's a gotcha moment and they are just teasing us - which I really have not seen Lyndsay hardly ever do in all these years - I have a real feeling it was the truth. Maybe they had plans that got shifted with the removal of 32 bit - maybe they are reworking something with the 64 bit - or maybe it is because they didn't want to further the pain of the 32 bit players being left out until they can deliver the Legacy game. Maybe they will deliver that and then by the Gamescom in August we get some news or something new to see. That is if they go to Gamescome. I haven't seen an announcement on that yet this year.

    ETA -I am not trying to be a downer - and believe me I want new packs just as much as anybody - I could use it more than anyone knows - but I also have to be a realists. I also listen to every word they say or try to - especially when it is Lyndsay.
