The Sims 5 Confirms New Detail via Job Advert

It seems the trend that The Sims 4 started will continue to the next entry.

Game developer Maxis has recently released a job advert that accidentally confirmed that The Sims 5 is going to be free-to-play.

The Sims is a popular game series of life simulation developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. The latest title is The Sims 4 which continues to get new content these days with over 70 DLCs to date. While it is still quite popular with the fans, many of them are really looking forward to a sequel, which has been announced last year. A new report has now revealed a new detail about the game and this might just completely divide the community if this is proven true.

The Sims 5 Job Advert Confirms New Detail

A new job advert was recently spotted online by the Sims Community revealing that Maxis is currently recruiting a Head of Marketplace and Monetization for the upcoming game announced last October 2022. The Sims 5 has presently the codename Project Rene, but obviously, it is going to follow the numbering scheme just like the previous titles.

The one who will be chosen for the job will “own pricing of all content in this free-to-enter game,” says the job description. The job advert was quickly pulled after it was spotted by the community.

Other details say: “own Project Rene’s in-game marketplace of content and ugc (free and paid), and manage a data-informed player-centric player purchase journey – maximizing value to players, optimizing player spend patterns, and minimizing player churn.”

Project Rene

Last year, Project Rene was revealed to the world with a brief look at the creation tools players can use when they get their hands on the game. Maxis has confirmed that it is still in early development. Players will be able to play solo or with friends with the same experience available across all supported devices and that includes mobile.
