The Sims 5 is codenamed Project Rene, at least 'a couple' years away


Recommended Posts


Electronic Arts didn't announce The Sims 5 during today's Behind The Sims Summit livestream, or at least not in so many words. It's still describing the next Sims game as "the future of The Sims," but has given it a working title: "Project Rene."

EA's VP of franchise creative for The Sims, Lyndsay Pearson, referred to Project Rene during the livestream as the "next generation Sims game and creative platform," before showing a glimpse of some of the editing tools and cross-platform play.

The next Sims game looks like it will be bringing back an expanded version of the Create-A-Style tool from The Sims 3. It also appears that it will let you to collaborate with friends by sharing designs more directly than you can with the current Sims Gallery, which is known for being a rather clunky way to share creations.

Pearson explains that Project Rene, whatever its true name ends up being ("Sims Infinite," or maybe just "The Sims"?), it's still a few years away.

"Over the next couple of years we'll continue sharing updates with all of you on Project Rene." Pearson says. "We'll share in progress work, explorations, sneak peeks, and behind-the scenes content, as well as start to open up early access to Project Rene software to small groups over time.

"This is super early for us and we've never shared information about our games years before they launch to the world but we're so excited to take you on this journey with us."
