The Sims 4 fans who tuned into EA's Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference are probably disappointed today. Despite the proven longevity of the simulation series, EA opted not to include The Sims 4 in its E3 press conference.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, EA announced that The Sims 4 would not be part of their three-day EA Play event. EA Play, which runs from June 12 to June 14, is not technically part of E3, but rather a separate event occurring in Los Angeles and London. Given that The Sims 4 was never meant to appear at EA Play, it stands to reason that EA also never planned to showcase The Sims 4 at E3.
It seems that some fans still held out hope that EA and Maxis would make a big announcement for The Sims 4 during E3. Those hopes were dashed during EA's press conference, and fans took to the official forums and Twitter to voice their dissatisfaction.
"I don't get why EA treats The Sims like an unwanted child. It's like they are embarrassed to place the game on the same pedestal as other games. Well, I guess I do get it as hardcore games would probably groan as soon as The Sims is mentioned"
