It looks like The Sims 5 will adopt Fortnite’s monetization model

It looks like EA will be creating The Sims 5, or Project Rene as it’s currently officially known, a free-to-play game that allows user-generated content in a monetization model similar to Fortnite.

As I mentioned Community SimsEA posted a job opening looking for a Marketplace and Monetization Manager for Project Rene, which it described as an “open-source” game.

The contestant will own all of the content in this free game, ensuring we have the best prizes and the best content design [and] Provide advice to content teams on game content needs to meet player demand.

Another responsibility mentioned the game market and the management of user-generated content. The candidate will own “Project Rene’s in-game content and UGC marketplace (both free and paid), and manage a data-driven player purchase journey: increasing player value, improving player spending habits and reduce player momentum. »

EA launched the Roblox-esque Fortnite Creative 2.0 in March, which allows players to create their own content for other users to use, for free or for a cost. The monetization model mentioned in the jobs listing looks a lot like this, suggesting that the base version of The Sims 5 could be a free-to-play game with additional purchases available for those looking to purchase new homes, clothes, and more.

IGN has asked EA for comment on the monetization of Project Rene.

The next Sims games were announced in October 2022, with Rene’s name chosen to represent words such as regeneration, rebirth and rebirth, and to “represent the developer’s new commitment to the bright future of The Sims”.
