The Sims 4: Birthday Stats
Recently, the hit game from EA celebrated its first birthday. This was met with much fanfare in the world of the Sims, because who doesn’t love a good celebration? The real surprise, however, was that there were just so many sims created during this first year. We all knew the game was an absolute hit, but we didn’t know that just under ONE HUNDRED MILLION sims were created in a year!
Wow, time really flies when you’re playing with life! It was one year ago this week that The Sims 4 released worldwide, and I’d like to thank everyone who’s played the game so far and joined us in the world of The Sims. We had a blast making the game, and every day we as developers are in awe of your creativity as players.
You’ve played a lot of The Sims 4 in the last twelve months, so much so that we’ve put together an infographic to show off the mind-blowing numbers. Almost 93 million Sims created? 235 million WooHoos?! You’ve been really busy this year! Check out more awesome stats at the bottom of this blog.
But releasing The Sims 4 was only the beginning – we’ve spent the last year listening to your feedback and delivering new gameplay experiences. We saw that you wanted new job options, so we released an Update with new Careers for your Sims to enjoy. When you told us you wanted more space for your Sims to live, work and play, we added the world of Newcrest. You told us you wanted more building options, so we released an Update in July with locked doors and half walls.
Your feedback and passion have made the first year of The Sims 4 a great one – and will help make the next year even better! We have so much great stuff planned, including The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack*.
Again, I can’t tell you enough how much we at Maxis appreciate your support for The Sims 4. We’ve had a really, really exciting year. The Sims 4is going to keep getting bigger and better every month, and we love having you along with us on this journey.
