Next Expansion Speculation?

I'm surprised there isn't any threads on this at the moment, but they've announced the second expansion of the year in mid-October for the past three years so I'm hoping we'll see something of the next big release soon. Feel free to share any speculation here

    The road map for the fall have 2 more kits left to release and I think a free content update. I haven't seen anything about a new expansion pack yet. I want to know what the next refresh will be too.

    I'm hoping the next kit is announced early this week. Hopefully today or tomorrow. I'm not sure when the last kit will get announced maybe in November or late October.

    As for the expansion... it's hard to tell. It might get teased next week or so I hope.

    I thought the kits were supposed to be one off occasional things, it seems like now they're just taking over from all the other content :neutral:

    One would think there would be a new EP in November like the last few years, and I do think there will be, but I'm trying to keep in mind the Cottage Living Ep released in July instead of June. I'm wondering if the production cycle got shifted slightly. I can't imagine EA wanting to miss out on those holiday sales that go on in November though. Although, they'd still hit a number of them if a pack released in December.
    It's kind of sad that I have to point out that anything I say is only just my opinion and may be a different one from someone else.

    It would be a bit odd to call it "Season of selves" if it did not last longer than a month. So they have to release their other kits first, and their roadmap also hints at more free updates.

    I personally feel that them announcing and releasing four kits at once is not looking good for future packs, that could mean a shift in their development where packs are becoming more rare.

    I just want an occult. I don't care about anything else. Occult players have once again gotten screwed this year.

    Agreed, I really thought we would get an occult game pack this fall, either werewolves or fairies. While I'm usually fine with any new content and I enjoy kits, if that is really all we're getting for the season, I will be extremely disappointed. I may need to go back to the Sims 3 for a while.

    I'm hoping it's a generations-type pack I would also be okay with a school pack for the teens/kids/toddlers, a hobbies pack, or a romance pack.

    Agreed. I sometimes feel like the devs have lost their love for this part of the fanbase and I feel it each time a new pack is announced that doesn't cater to the occult players. I thought for sure we'd get a new occult this year. (Timeline adds up 2015, 2017, 2019 so the logical conclusion was 2021)

    I am hoping when I have a chance to jump back in that things are looking up for the occult players.

    **fingers crossed**

    November is still fall, so I doubt we will be getting a new pack before early December, that would contradict their "Season of selves" announcement.

    But if it's a good EP (meaning one they have the hope to be well received), they might announce it about two months prior to release so we could get some info on it soon.

    I don't know if they'll release an occult pack for X-Mas though, they might prefer releasing something targeted at a larger audience - especially as the most popular occults have already been released.
    Thank you, EA, for patching toddlers in.

    I think they didn't define the "season of selves" as fall for good reason - namely that we will be getting an expansion probably right on American Thanksgiving weekend, because I highly doubt that EA would leave Black Friday money on the table like that.

    As for what it might be... I'm hoping for Generations so that we can get one of the last "big requests" over and done with, and they can explore packs and ideas that are less broad base - because after Generations and maybe Cars, there's not much that I can see really appeals to huge swaths of the vocal fandom.
  • 83bienchen83bienchen Posts: 1,566 Member
    How about romance? That certainly has a broader appeal.
    Hotels and bands also have.

    There surely isn't only one "big request" pack missing.

    Hm. There is nothing substantial for me to assume the next pack, but I would find it very weird to not get something (EP, GP, or SP) besides kits before the end of the year.
  • filipomelfilipomel Posts: 1,527 Member
    I'm hoping these base game updates are the expansion.

    I also want an occult pack, no matter werewolves or fairies, I'm feeling OK with it.
    However, werewolves may be more difficult because lunar system needs to be added.

    I got the previous EP CoL so according to me regular schedule I'm supposed to skip the next pack, LOL. Meaning I hope for something that I really don't wish for - perhaps "TS4 Cleaning Toilets Living" or "TS4 Guilty & Pleasures" ;) I'm wanting whatever might come with a French pack, so let's postpone that to Spring...

    This right here, honestly they keep their kits, just give me the good stuff already.
    knowledge is power and power is absolute.

    I need weres in my game - wolves, cats, bears, etc. Why stop at just werewolves? lol Just give me an occult already! Zombies, fairies, weres, just throw me a bone here!

    I think the next ep go release is either a Romance based one with hotels or Generations

    Please please please let this prediction be correct!

    For an EP to be released in near time ( a month or so) there should be an announcement this week, considering how long it took them to release Country Living after announcing it.
  • AllinsimstimeAllinsimstime Posts: 79 Member
    If we are getting an Expansion in November, I’m gonna make the guess that it would come out November 19th. The week before Thanksgiving in the US.

    This would mean they could announce it next week and still have a month between Announcement and Release.

    I predict Bonus items if you preorder this pack :p
