I found this here:
http://www.thegamer.com/the-sims-5-rumors/

I'll quote some brief excerpts:

The Gamer wrote:8. Rumor: The Lack Of Sims 4 Content Could Mean The Sims 5 Is Already In Development

LOL. 

The Gamer wrote:14. Rumor: The Customization System Will Receive An Overhaul

However, like many features of this installation, the developers – for some strange reason – decided to remove a vast majority of the customization options. This has profoundly limited the characters in terms of fashion choices and material.

As the article hinted in a different place, I also think one of the motivations in the entire TS4 game was to make it playable for little kids (and tired/frustrated adults looking for some distraction). Achieved through "simplifying" everything, even if it meant the removal of some things/features.


The Gamer wrote:6. Rumor: It Will Be A Vast Improvement On Previous Games

Many wouldn’t be surprised to find out that The Sims 4 hasn’t performed as well as EA and Maxis had initially planned. The developers of the series have even chosen to speak out about the financial crisis that threatens the series – and as it turns out, the next installment of The Sims relies solely on the success of the fourth game.

The real question: what could you possibly do different in the game? Most of the "rumors" mentioned in the article are the usual generic yada-yada: more realism, more (customization) options, more interactivity, more content, better gameplay, etc. You could take e.g. The Sims 3 and then improve technical optimization, add more features in it, and make it better in the end. But would I myself pay for such a The Sims 5? Probably not, because I played so much The Sims 3, that I saw nearly everything.

One new thing you could introduce is, like the article mentioned, VR-capability, since that seems more and more of a thing now. OK. 

Another feature that could be interesting is some sort of multiplayer mode where you can interact with other player's sim(s), something the article doesn't mention. Then again, they may not want to go the same route as Second Life.

The Sims 4 base game has sold more than 6 million copies. So I guess all those rumors are just false as the game is doing extremely well.

I wonder how many of those sales are from people who bought this thing for the Gallery access, though. Or because they thought they could add cracked DLC "into" their Origin accounts. And let's not forget the people buying part of a game series in order to make them feel "less guilty" when pirating new updates or DLC. A.k.a. I don't think numbers alone have to mean much.

And I don't think that - apart from little kids who haven't played the earlier Sims titles - anybody will want a Sims 5 that simply repacks or rehashes features from previous games. My guess would be that they will try considering some form of online play in Sims 5, to make something new.

Making a multiplayer thingie in the game is a very big stunt. But if it's implemented well, it'll be amazing.

According to Wikipedia, The Sims 4 has sold 5 million copies, not even close to The Sims 2. But then again, just because the game could sell over a million copies doesn't mean the fan base remains faithful. E.g. The Sims 2 sold fewer than The Sims 3 but the fan base remains larger than The Sims 3.

Now I'm wondering how many The Sims 4 EP, GP, and SP has been sold to this date given that it has 22 add ons, the most in the series.
