The company stated, "With the Sims 4 being free to play, our team is more driven than ever to developing new and meaningful The Sims 4 experiences for our players and we will continue to develop and release packs, kits, and Sims Delivery Express drops into the near future.

On October 18, a live stream from the game's creator Maxis will provide further information about its future intentions for the title, which is presently available for $19.99 / £17.99.

"The Sims is one of the great franchises of our industry and operates in a market where we have very little competition in the lifestyle category," EA CEO Andrew Wilson said during earnings call last November.

The team, he continued, "continues to consider how to expand that franchise even more than today in a category and with a player base that is extremely different from the rest of our assets."
