Rod Humble, a former real-life Sims executive and Sims 2 NPC
, is reportedly working on a life simulation game since 2018. For context, Paralives started development in the same year. The most publicly-available details of the project can be read in this excellent profile
, though it is light on specifics.
A few days ago, Rod on Twitter [edit: his Twitter has been deactivated]
- I encourage you to follow him and he follows simmers back! - announced he's going off social media for a few months to intensely work for an important time in the game. The tweet is here
. The text is as follows:
Taking another break from social media & community my friends. Nothing bad, just clearing my mind to focus on an important time for the game.
I hope some of you will be future customers and my focus is on delivering a great game to serve you. Love you all, seeya in a few months.
I think he could be gearing up for a first announcement or teaser of the game. What do you guys think? I'm very excited.Would you guys buy Sims 5, this new competitor, or both?
