The Sims 4 is expected to release in 2014 for PC and Mac, EA and developer Maxis announced.

In a statement on the official company blog, EA said The Sims 4 will give players a deeper connection to the most expressive and interesting Sims ever.

The game will also allow players to use new intuitive tools to personalize their game world and share it with friends.

The Sims 4 will not require an always-on internet connection. According to EA, the game will be a single-player offline experience. The statement suggests there will be no multiplayer aspect of The Sims 4.

SimCity, which released earlier this year, experienced major server issues causing the always-online game to be unplayable at launch. The incident resulted in EA giving free games to SimCity owners and EA CEO John Riccitiello stepping down.

EA released The Sims 3 for consoles and PC in 2009. However, expansions and bonus content are still being added to the game. The Island Paradise expansion is due to launch in June and a future-themed expansion is expected to be out later this year. A Movie Stuff pack is also set to release in September.

The Sims 3 is available on every imaginable platform, including iOS, Android and Nintendo 3DS. No additional platforms were announced for The Sims 4.
