This is an interview with Rod Humble that's working there right now:
And I did make a video on it cause I thought that it's exciting, but really article is all you need:
I have a feeling that we'll finally have choice in life simulator market. There's a chance that Paralives, The Sims 5 and Paradox's game will come out at the same time and I hope that each one of them has a vastly different style in approaching it, because I would like to have reasons to own all 3 games.
However the last time this happened, when Cities:Skylines arrived, instead of ramping up the competition, EA left the field. I wouldn't like that. I want competition, not the end of Sims.
So what do you think? Do you think that the article is too vague and we're jumping to conclusions? Do you think that EA will bow out again the moment any other company takes them up, or do you think we may really see an evolution in the genre with many different games?
The new thang that I do now is 100 baby challenge
in The Sims 3 (it's my first time!)!
