The Sims 5 Release Date Updates
The Sims 5 release date is something Wilson doesn’t share with the audiences, but it will take some time if they are implementing so many changes to the game title.

Players all over the world are eagerly waiting for EA to announce ‘The Sims 5’ and it could happen in EA Play 2020 as per some reports.
