    I voted end of august, but i think it will be announced towards the middle of the month.

    The fact that they released Nifty Knitting in late July as opposed to August could mean the GP is coming in August. A late August release with a mid-August announcement seems likely.

    I mean, there's no reason for them to be showing up with future cube hints if they're going to wait until the end of August to announce it. That would just be super weird. Although, it's already weird given there aren't really any new future cube hints except one that maybe suggests bunkbeds.

    Sims' marketing strategies seriously make me think we need a long DTR.

    Isn't it supposed to be this quarter? Could be wrong, but I thought the roadmap was for the rest of the quarter and we don't know what will be at the end of the year. My guess by guesses and looking at content release for the last couple of years is that we will have 5 packs this year like we have sadly had the last 2 years.

    Winter Gp in a month and Farming EP in Nov/ Dec.

    We almost/ maybe always have a Jan pack. Weddings? Happy haunts/ dangerous/grim/ghost/afterlife Go or Ep in March?

    Not sure, but would love that lineup.

    Game packs are usually announced four weeks before launch, right?

    Possibly next week or the following one since SimGuruGeorge is hinting it could mean soon.

    I am guessing early-mid September GP announcement, with a late September release... or an early October release. I would bet on a Werewolf game pack, followed by a late November expansion (perhaps winter vacation themed, perhaps not, could be something completely unexpected). I think if we do see a farming pack, it will be either a February game pack or a June EP; I don't expect to see it this year.

    September is the last month the GP can release accounts to the roadmap.

    I picked the farthest away because I have a sneaking suspicion that they expect Knifty Knitting to hold us over a while. Perhaps they will surprise me and announce and release it soon, but I rather doubt it. What else will they do with 2020 if it comes out in August? Nothing else is on the roadmap, but even if they are giving us that 2nd expansion that would be four months to play around with. If they want to even out the gaps or take a large gap, it makes sense to release it later.

    I just noticed that both the EP and the SP were released 16 days early compared to last year.

    Island Living - June 21, 2019
    Eco Lifestyle - June 5, 2020

    Eco Lifestyle was released 16 days earlier than Island Living.

    Moschino - August 13, 2019
    Nifty Knitting - July 28, 2020

    Nifty Knitting was also released 16 days earlier than Moschino.

    Realm of Magic - September 10, 2019
    GP09 - August 25, 2020?

    If the trend holds the GP would be released on the 25th :D

    There will be a 2nd Expansion Pack in November and they might even surprise us with another Stuffpack in October. We'll see. I'm hoping.

    I run a poll on Twitter for 2 days and most believe we will get a GP Announcement in August

    I hope you are right. It would be nice to see some more stuff since I was not that hyped for NK, even if I am enjoying it more than expected.

    Really?!! I dont keep up so i thought this upcoming gp might be the last pack for the current year. Sounds like much more content is yet to come! Better start saving up then XD I guess an august announcement sounds about right.

    Didn't we just get a (an admittedly stupid) pack? Why would they rush out another GP?

    it would be pleasant news if I am mistaken but was the stuff pack game pack and expansion pack what was promised for the year of 2020? i am more interested in what theme the game pack might have ...but more content at a later day would be icing on the cake

    This reminds me of when they released Jungle Adventure and My First Pet Stuff within like 2 weeks of each other 😂

    The end of September would be too late to announce as September is the last month The GP could release according to the roadmap. If they announced at the end of September the GP would release in October. That can't happen unless they delay it and I don't see them doing that.

    The GP is the last pack to release up to September according to the roadmap. The Expansion Pack wasn't announced but we know it will come in November.
