Has simmers forgot what one of the gurus said after the release of the base game? A lot of simmers were asking questions about TS5, the progress, what engine they were designing TS5 on, etc. and Grant Rodiek said that if TS4 fails than the series is done. There will be no Sims 5!
The reason I'm posting this is that on random forums especially on here I see so many simmers who are making threads about "Sims 5 Requests" and I just want those simmers to stop wasting their time. I am optimistic that the game will become more successful after the first 2 or 3 expansions and game packs are released, updates, bugs fixed, and hopefully missing features are added back into the game. But, because you always have to see everything from both sides. BUT, if TS4 fails than I hope people released that The Sims franchise will be over. Yes, the end.
I don't know if simmers want it to be the end? I'm not ready for my beloved game bite the dust. And I'm not promoting people to buy the game just for the sake of keeping the game going strong. Buy it because you want to buy it and give it a try, or don't buy it because you're not satisfied with the product EA has given to us. There is a 50/50 mix with me. I don't love it and I don't hate it. I like the game. And I do dislike it as well. But overall I am enjoying the game. And if you absolutely hate the game what are you achieving personally by telling others who do want to give the game a chance by telling those simmers not to buy? Those simmers are still going to buy it, try it, and make the choice on their own whether they enjoy it, don't enjoy it, or are like me and many other simmers---drawn down the middle.
Again, if you think Maxis and EA are just going to accept TS4 as a flop and move on to TS5 you're sadly mistaken. They've already said in numerous interviews that if TS4 isn't successful there will not be or ever will be another series to The Sims. I posted a couple of references just for those who don't know of any of this news.http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Sims-5-Won-t-Happen-Sims-4-Doesn-t-Sell-Says-Producer-67162.htmlhttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/09/08/maxis-producer-if-sims-4-isnt-successful-theres-no-sims-5/
