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

Published

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

Animal Farm Developer Talks Challenges of Adaptation

Published

Animal Farm

While details of the upcoming Animal Farm game remain scant, one of the key developers, Imre Jele, has opened up about the process of adapting George Orwell’s classic text.

Jele took to the stage during University College London’s recent event ‘Rebel? Prophet? Relic? Perspectives on George Orwell in 2019’ to discuss the inspirations and challenges the team has faced. While no transcript of the talk is available, sources from the event took to Twitter to share some of Jele’s insights.

Perhaps most notable is the statement (via the event’s official Twitter page) that “We didn’t want Animal Farm in space—we just wanted Animal Farm, as it was in the text.” This desire separates the project from other adaptations such as Dante’s Inferno or American McGee’s Alice that take considerable liberties with their source material. At the same time, the political nature of the book means that the game should offer more than simple entertainment:

However, these goals are complicated by the fact that, according to Jele (via The Orwell Foundation) that the team is “constantly encountering the problem: at what point in the story would Orwell allow the the reader—the player—to make choices?”

Jele also discussed his own history with the book, which he first experienced as a child in Russian-occupied Hungary, and how it related to his family’s political opinions.

The game was first announced almost two years ago and described as an “adventure-tycoon” experience, though relatively few concrete details have yet been made available. At present, only a PC launch is confirmed with consoles a possibility, while no release window has been announced.
