The Sims fans are buzzing today about a "big announcement" coming from Electronic Arts tomorrow, according to several fansites. Many Sims franchise fansites have been invited to an exclusive event, a conference call where an "exciting piece of news" will be unveiled. A "brand new image" will accompany the announcement, which will be exclusive to the fansites for three hours before an official press release is sent out.
What could the announcement be? Well, a number of sources believe we could be on the verge of The Sims 4 being announced. A domain registration for TheSims4.com is live and redirecting to the main Sims homepage. Honestly, it seems like a relatively small scale event for the reveal of a big property like The Sims, but it's also a pretty respectable one considering EA's recent history.
Tune in tomorrow for the official word on what Electronic Arts' "big news" from The Sims franchise is. Keep in mind this is all rumor right now and could just as well be a new expansion from The Sims 3 instead of The Sims 4 unveiling.
