During today’s “Inside Maxis” stream, the final segment was partly dedicated to addressing player feedback regarding certain features they want to see in the game. SimGuruBat and SimGuruAzure took time to talk about various player requests, and also confirmed “many many more years” of content for The Sims 4.
SimGuruAzure: So for the next part we will talk about “When will you add…? So we’ve seen a lot of questions from you guys about specific pack themes and features such as generation packs and cars and here’s what we want you to know. We love your ideas first of all and I personally really enjoy having those things in my game too. What we can say is that the suggested packs and highly requested features are always at the top of our mind, especially when we think about what we want to do next.
As soon as these things become more real we will update you right here at Inside Maxis. What do we need to do to make it more real? Just to give you guys a little bit of a behind-the-scenes look at what we do to bring new content into the game, it involves many many processes. We have to take important steps that are a part of the game development process and often that takes a lot of time. This time is needed to ensure that we meet your expectations and that we’re delivering the best quality to you guys. Sometimes there’s also foundational technology that we need to work on and sometimes we need to dig into the designs very deeply to make these things happen.
SimGuruBat: We’ve read a lot of your feedback and our goal is for you to be as excited about our features and packs as we are. We put a lot of heart into what we do and we try to make as many people as happy as we can. But we also know it’s kind of impossible to meet everyone’s expectations. The great thing is as a game continues to grow and we look forward to delivering more stuff as the game goes on…for many many more years to come. Many many more years to come.
