Senior Producer Working on The Sims 4 Debunks Rumors About The Game Coming to PS4 & Xbox One

Apparently some rumors have been circulating that pointed at The Sims 4 coming to the PS4 and Xbox One in the near future. Those rumors are apparently untrue according to a senior producer working on the game.

Senior Producer, Lyndasy Pearson, took to Twitter last week to dispel the rumor that The Sims 4 was heading to consoles soon saying, “we have no plans for a console version of The Sims 4 anytime in the near future. Ignore the rumors.”

I personally haven’t seen any rumors or hints that a console version of The Sims 4 was on the way, so I’m curious as to who was spreading that rumor around. For now, though, don’t expect to see The Sims on consoles in the near future, if that’s what you were hoping for.

I bought the game during Christmas this past year, and have yet to install it. Should probably do that soon.

Thanks, JStationX

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
