Yes I know the Sims 4 is a "service game" but the Sims 5 is as inevitable as me ordering pizza at 1am (this happens more then I care to admit) and with 30 packs to its name I suspect an upper limit exists for the Sims 4 - regardless of what they officially tweet.
Love it or hate it, the Sims 4 also has its limitations and there's only so much they can add within its current structural "confines" of design. Only so many "fresh" ideas that can sell packs, with the bigger releases (more or less) behind the Sims 4.
With University as the next expansion more or less unofficially confirmed for Nov 15, I personally suspect we will see 2-3 more packs after that.
One between Feb-Mar (probably a stuff pack) and a gamepack for Spring (Apr-May) and perhaps a final expansion pack in July/August.
After that I suspect the Sims 5 will be announced for the fall.
I could also be totally wrong, they could have packs planned out until 2022 too, especially if packs are selling at a steady rate. Not outside of the realm of possibility based on previous EA investor calls (which stated as much publicly).
There's also the possibility of delaying the Sims 5 until early 2021 to launch alongside PS5/next gen consoles AND/OR simply to get the Sims 5 release "done right" based on the rocky launch of the Sims 4. In which case I'd suspect a March 2021 release.
Regardless the Sims 5 is coming eventually, even if its 5 years from now or 2, so how many more packs do you think we'll see for the Sims 4?
