Talk pages are used to discuss changes or improvements to the article or page only.

Seasons looks completely fake, but I wish it would be made. Oh how I've been longing for seasons in TS3. Bleeh [Chat] 23:20, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

All I know is that The Sims 3: Hobbies and Proffesions is real (though I'm having second thoughts). I think the others are fake. Author [Talking]

Notes about rumors, citations and speculation[edit source]

First, everything in the real world should be cited. To be considered a rumor rather than just an idea there must be "talk" that suggests it could be true and a reference to this "talk".

Second, only facts. Use the talk page to express opinions and speculate.

Third, this article is for rumors. If you are lucky enough to know, this is not the right article.

I noticed on the get hands on forum blog thingy that someone mentioned something to do with weather but I think it was just a joke Guffers 08:01, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
Ambitions added the Fog Emitter which can create all kinds of weather effects, I think that's what you're referring to. Whether this means we'll have weather in a future EP is anyone's guess. Duskey(talk)(blog) 17:20, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

After Dark?[edit source]

There has been a rumor going around about an expansion pack named 'After Dark' which contains a mix of TS1 Hot Date and TS2 Nightlife. Should I add it to the list? Guffers 08:57, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

If you can link to any of these rumors then yes. I believe you need an interview hint, a fake image or something to be able to put it on the main page. Duskey 02:34, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
After Dark rumor is added to the main page now. Duskey(talk)(blog) 00:49, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
Since it was spotted listed at a retailer now, does that make it practically confirmed according to the guidelines of this page? Duskey(talk)(blog) 22:36, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
I would say not yet... if it appears somewhere on EA's store or site, much like Fast Lane Stuff did before its official announcement, then I would say it should be changed from 'rumor' to 'practically confirmed', 'likely real' or something to that effect. At the most right now, maybe change it from 'rumor' to 'plausible'. --Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog) 22:47, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
Expansion pack plausible or expansion pack busted, find out next week on SimBusters. Duskey(talk)(blog) 23:23, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, something like that :) --Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog) 00:29, July 9, 2010 (UTC)
Also check out this After Dark Screenshot. Duskey(talk)(blog) 17:20, July 9, 2010 (UTC)
After dark needs to be removed from the Rumor page since we now know that it is real and has the name "Late Night". Bafendo 07:04, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
It will happen soon... typically, if a rumor is confirmed, it's given a few days wait before it's moved off the page. There's also discussion of possibly creating a 'Confirmed' section on the page, so I'm hesitant to take LN off yet. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 07:06, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
LostInRiverview has added a 'confirmed rumors' section. Duskey(talk) 15:20, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

New layout[edit source]

We should probably make the layout a bit more simple. I've noticed a few users who seem confused and not sure where they need to add their information. Duskey(talk) 19:30, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

It would be a nice touch to add a 'confirmed rumors' section so please do not delete any rumors on the main page, even though they have been confirmed. Duskey(talk) 16:09, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
I re-did the layout to enable more inexperienced wikians to add their contributions. Duskey(talk) 15:20, July 24, 2010 (UTC)

The Sims 3: Medieval/Realm[edit source]

I don't believe Medieval/Realm is gonna be an expansion, It will probably be a stuff pack (possibly titled "The Sims 3: Medieval Stuff" or "The Sims 3: Realm Stuff"), plus, it does not sound like is would make a good expansion.

Also, please put this on the page, I mean, something like a post like this is normally what starts RUMORS.--Eduardog3000 04:45, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

We don't mind rumors as long as they are kept on this page and there's at least some sort of evidence to it. Someone wishing for a pets expansion doesn't make it a rumor. Someone listing cool stuff he or she would like added to the game is not a rumor. EA buying domains with certain keywords in them and then publically stating that they're taking the Sims through time and space is plenty of reason to start rumors, as long as they do not turn into speculation. The article about Medieval/Realms on the main page is written from a neutral stand point and contains no speculation, it merely states facts. Duskey(talk) 06:17, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Considering that Medieval has been confirmed as a new game overall, it should be removed from the rumor page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eduardog3000 (talkcontribs) 03:56, July 31, 2010

The general policy is that a game isn't moved off the rumor page... If a rumor is confirmed true, it's moved to the appropriate section. If you mean that a new page should be created, the policy is that a page is not created for a game until official confirmation is given by EA. There has been no official confirmation, and there will be no page until there is official confirmation. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 04:05, July 31, 2010 (UTC)

Move the page[edit source]

It seems to me that "The Sims 3 Expanion Pack Rumors" isn't a good title for this page, since it encompasses any rumor of any new Sim game, not restricted merely to new Expansion packs. If taking the title literally, it even excludes new stuff packs for TS3! However, I'm having a hard time coming up with an appropriate name; something to encompass rumors of all new Sims games, not just new expansions or stuff packs for TS3. Any thoughts on this? -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 16:51, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

All rumors put on this page start a Sims 3 EP rumors, and after they are put on the page no matter what they are confirmed as, expansion or not, they stay on the page under the "Confirmed" Section--Eduardog3000 17:56, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Not necessarily. For a long time, It's been assumed that Medieval wouldn't be an expansion. True, it started its "life" as an expansion rumor, but it became something different. If going off of strict interpretation of title, then Medieval should have been confirmed fake - The Sims Medieval is not an expansion pack, so to confirm it's existence here goes against the concept of an expansion pack rumor. Another point; The Sims 4. If there are real substantial rumors that TS4's announcement is forthcoming, those rumors should have some place to be posted. Where else but a page devoted to new game rumors? Yet another point, and one to refute your statement; there are Stuff Pack rumors on this page as well; a stuff pack is not the same as an expansion pack, so those rumors technically don't belong here either.
These reasons are exactly the reasons I'm in favor of renaming this page. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 18:06, August 3, 2010 (UTC)
Page is moved to New game, expansion or stuff pack rumors. If you can think of a better title, please share it! I'm not a big fan of this one, but it encompasses all the information, so it works. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 18:21, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

I'M MOVING IT BACK, THE NEW NAME IS STUPID--Eduardog3000 18:37, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Here is an idea, how about "The Sims Game Rumors", also do not move pages without saying the name here first.--Eduardog3000 18:41, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

The new name is fine... however, to match naming conventions, it's going to be moved to 'The Sims game rumors'. There is also the issue of multiple redirects which needs to be solved now. -- Patrick (LostInRiverview) (talk)(blog)(random page) 18:54, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Fake Box Art[edit source]

Before this becomes a edit war: I said this could possibly be the box art for outdoor living stuff. Bafendo said its fake. I said it could possibly be fake, but Bafendo reverted it again. What should we say about this picture? BobNewbie talkblog 12:49, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Also, Wikipedia "confirms " it, though no announcement has been made be EA

compare this box art to the background is exactly the same, if this was real the BG would be different. Another reason i say this is because of the Sims 3 and The Sims 3: Deluxe box art has been changed to match that of the console box art. look closely at sp2 box art and this. also that bit of white around the plumbob is off on this outdoors boxart that and "outdoors" is too close to the bottom of the sims 3. and wikipedia is not always a reliable source when it comes to unconfirmed games/rumorsBafendo 13:02, November 28, 2010 (UTC).
almost forgot one other very obvious thing, the EA Sims logo in the corner is the old one. with Late Night and The Sims 3 (Console) the EA Sims logo has been changed/has a new lookBafendo 13:26, November 28, 2010 (UTC).
Without a source, anything said about this image is conjecture. Since the stuff pack has been announced the image is indeed fake. --a_morris (talk) 20:41, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

The Sims 3: Generations[edit source]

we are getting closer to a rumored announcement of EP4. i found a working link on for the system requirements for Generations.[1]Bafendo 19:03, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Another thing is the fact that it was March 4th, 2010 during GDC when EA announced Ambitions. Thus EA repeating this at GDC 2011 is a high possibility.Bafendo 22:48, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Infinitesims found the ESRB rating for Generations.

Sims 3 Generations ESRB rating

Bafendo 19:14, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

About time to create The Sims 3:Generations then? /Firre 01:20, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

Not until officially confirmed by EA. -- LostInRiverview talk · blog 05:59, March 7, 2011 (UTC)
it's looking like EP4 won't be announced until after Medieval is released. One reason i say this is due to EA removing the name Generations and it's description from the site code of and anything hinting towards it excluding a few threads in their forums. So within two weeks maybe EA will say something after Medieval is released. Although this is pure speculation.Bafendo 14:49, March 8, 2011 (UTC)It is real LiR. the trailers for Expansion 4 and 5/console EP1 can be seen here4 and 5here.Bafendo 16:32, March 11, 2011 (UTC)

Sims 3 "Unleashed" fake box art[edit source]

I'm curious why an obvious fake was put on this page. The game is seven months away and Unleashed is most likely only a temporary name, just like "After Dark" was the temporary name of Late Night. It should be removed.Bafendo 22:08, March 14, 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup?[edit source]

Woganhemlock - This can't end well.
TALK - 07:57, April 3, 2011 (UTC)
Should we clean up this page a litle? Some of these rumors are really old. Or maybe we should have a special page for current rumors, or something. I don't know.

Has the Generations trailer been removed?[edit source]

The IP edited this page removing the link to the trailer of Generations on Youtube, and their edit was reverted, although when I checked Youtube the video really has been removed. Is it still viewable for anybody else? --Bleeh(talk) (blog) 03:15, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Generations[edit source]

The box art doesn't seem legit to me. Why isn't Expansion Pack written on it? Stand alone game? I think not, that's Medieval. Tell me what you think.
it was a photoshop alteration of the Swedish box art. It's been removed.The Black Scorpion 11:44, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Showtime[edit source]

Why does it keep getting moved back to Rumors instead of Confirmed True? A listing was found on Origin EU, but later removed. Technically it's confirmed.[2]The Black Scorpion 07:07, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

Few more hours until the Press Release for Showtime, but here's more proof in the mean time. EA has added Showtime to their Sims Site.[3]--The Black Scorpion 08:48, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
This EP will be awesome! Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 09:30, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

Sigh, I'm kinda late to realize this... I think it's not only werewolf, but witch as well. Nikel Talk 15:06, April 3, 2012 (UTC)
Werewolf, witches/wizards, zombies and fairies all seem to be included. Zombies seem to be created with a potion like a proper voodoo style zombie! Ephemera rayne 16:45, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

TS3:KPST Rumor[edit source]

If I try to remember, I think this pack has already been announced and the article been made before the rumor is written here. So, what's the point of putting the "rumor", if we already know that the game has existed? Should we remove it? Nikel Talk 00:30, April 23, 2012 (UTC)

Seasons Expansion?[edit source]

I'll just leave this here.

Also this.

And this.


They just keep coming.

Why did you black out the URL and not include a source to the survey? For shame.-- (talk) 04:00, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
It isn't just a survey anyone can take, the URL was some sort of code, and I wasn't sure, so I blacked it out.--Eduardog3000 Ed G 04:06, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Someone else explained that part of the URL is unique to your account with them. Also, this sounds more like a Seasons Expansion, options for a new Stuff Pack and Store Stuff. Sweetness.--The Black Scorpion 04:11, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Oh no, not Seasons. Aren't they enough naming Expansion Packs after its prequel? Weather, please! Nikel Talk 11:45, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
The question about the EP with weather and related activities, is followed by one with a few name choices for the possible EP. Seasons is one of them, but I don't remember what the other choices were. Also, some of our readers on SimPrograms remembered one describing Showtime from fall 2011 or so. Also, don't get your hopes up about a true vacation EP. The Gurus have made it clear that WA is our Vacation EP.--The Black Scorpion 19:58, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
Hey Diesel is mentioned in the survey and now it is a stuff pack. Does that mean that Seasons may actually be the next expansion? :I Starmoonie 04:41, May 18, 2012 (UTC)
No. Info leaked in the Showtime mega patch revealed that the next EP will be supernatural/magic themed.--The Black Scorpion 07:41, May 18, 2012 (UTC)

Corymach7's game rumors[edit source]

Hello, just you may have noticed that there will be 9 expansion packs for The Sims 3 and the last expansion pack is The Sims 3 TV Game Shows. And the Sims 3 Middle School will come out after Supernatural. Corymach7(Talk Here) 14:53, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Do you have any references to prove it? Nikel Talk Vote! 10:22, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Just a game rumor. Corymach7(Talk Here) 14:53, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Uh no, these are not rumors. They are something you have made up, thus a lie. The only rumor right now is that Weather will be the next EP after Supernatural. Oh and OP, use the "signature button" at the end of your comments.--The Black Scorpion 19:48, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Per all. If you don't have any evidence to back up something then don't just go and make forum threads about it like you already did Corymach7. Seasons is just a rumour at the moment and we have insufficient evidence to verify it's existence. Please do not pass off rumours or seemingly fictitious entries as facts unless you have something to back yourself up. Lost Labyrinth (c)(b) 21:24, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Sims 3 seasons rumor 2012[edit source]

SimsVip rumor

how true do you think this rumor is? Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 14:48, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Like... less than one month after Supernatural? -_- Nikel Talk Vote! 15:07, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe they started is earlier, so it can be ready for Christmas? :D Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 19:06, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Actually it will be 2 months after Supernatural. Also, we at SimPrograms discovered it first via a few gaming surveys. EP 8 will (according to the surveys) bring back both Aliens and Weather. Which were 2 of the most popular features in TS2. Also, the reason for rushing through EP's might be due to The Sims 4. We already know that there will be 10 EPs and SPs, so it makes since that EP 9 and 10 along with the last stuff packs will be released next year. We will most likely get an announcement of Sims 4 at E3 2013, Gamescom 2013 or EA's summer event in 2013.--The Black Scorpion 19:46, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
Actually i like the way Sims 3 is made. I don't know why are they rushing to make sims 4 since there is more work that can be done on sims 3 also. And since sims 3 required a lot of memory space and computer requirement what would sims 4 be. o.O Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 10:32, July 5, 2012 (UTC)
Another one Sims 3: Season website found by SimsVip. Alex9400 | TALK with me. I ♥ ♦³ :-) 08:20, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
It makes sense actually. People gobble up sims games and expansions like candy, so "make more games in shorter period of time" = profit. Exactly the reason why they're adding the more popular stuff towards the end. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the memory requirements are because of memory leaks from rushed coding. Also, they could be trying to get the big guns out because of the massive amount of attention Minecraft's been getting. "Hey look over here! We have aliens!" Talk 03:51, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

Sims 3 Seasons??[edit source]

So the Seasons expansion may not as far away as we thought?

Questions about the expansion were asked in a survey on VGMarket.

The Sims 3 Middle School, H&M Fashion Stuff, TV Game Shows & The Sims 3 Glamour Life Stuff[edit source]


I've started the forums of those 4 games and predicted the release date of the games for the whole world. Can you add those games on the Rumors list? Corymach7 (talk) 00:18, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

No. The rumors page is for games that are rumored by other Sims fansites, mainly due to hints dropped by game developers, postings on online game retailer websites, or other 'clues' that the fansites discover. The Sims Wiki is not the source of these rumors, they are only posted on the rumors page because other sites have reported on them first. -- LiR speak ~ read 00:23, July 22, 2012 (UTC)
OK, OK. I'll post that on The Sims 3 Forums one rumor at a time. Corymach7 (talk) 02:50, July 22, 2012 (UTC)
It's only a rumor if it has some valid source. You saying it doesn't make it valid. If you add it to anywhere on this wiki it'll likely be deleted. ђ talk 02:55, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

I've made The Sims 4 Pets Prediction[edit source]

The Sims 4 Pets

Here is a link that says that The Sims 4 Pets will come out on January 12, 2014. Can you add that to the Rumors list? I've added a website you can look at. Corymach7 (talk) 15:56, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

No we will not, all you are doing is creating false rumors. Do not create forums on other sites and claim they will come out on certain dates with out some proof. Besides we have a "The Sims 4 Predictions" forum page, maybe you would like to add your predictions there? (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻)ǝıuooɯɹɐʇsVOTE! 16:01, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

The Sims 4: Seasons?[edit source]
