During today’s Inside Maxis stream, SimGurus confirmed that they are working on adding non-binary pronouns to the game in order to include gender neutral language. Timing on this feature is not available, however, they confirmed they are exploring and working on a way to include it for all languages to ensure perfect execution.

Question: When will pronouns be added to The Sims 4?

GrimSuruDoi: When it comes to representation, it’s not a destination. It’s a journey that we are all continuously working towards across the board. We’ve seen and read your comments regarding non-binary pronouns and their availability in game. We hear you.


At this time, we cannot confirm anything in regards to timing, but what we can say is that for a long time our team has been evaluating ways to add gender neutral language while considering how complex it would be to do so. Currently we have been investigating the changes needed, considering not only the size of the game, but the possibilities for all of our 18 supported languages to make sure that we do this work in the best way possible.
