Bit Tech heard EA will soon announce The Sims 3. This is pretty logical considering this game series is one of the firm's biggest cash cows.
Speaking on the QuarterToThree forums (found via RockPaperShotgun), Rod said that "For Sims 3 there will be new information soon."
Just last week EA also hinted at a pair of new MySims games for the Wii and DS this year, as well as SimCity Creator and SimAnimals. The Sims 2 Freetime expansion is also incoming this year, so that's a whole lot of Sim for gamers to cope with.
Spore is going to be out this year as well, so check out our in-depth preview to see whats in store for that title.
Despite the continued over-exploitation of The Sims, Humble has said that there will be fewer Sims products going on sales this year than in last year, presumably as the title is now noticeably aging and EA is readying for pastures new.
