No Sims 4 reviews until after launch

Review embargoes are sometimes a good indication about whether a studio is confident in the quality of their game or not. Most of the time when a game is embargoed until after release, it’s not a good sign. Call of Duty on the Vita  is one of the best example of this, and now Sims 4 could join that growing list.
The Sims 4 is coming out next month, but we won’t be able to tell you whether it’s any better than SimCity at launch or not. That’s because EA isn’t sending out reviews to press until after launch. No early access, no warning if the game is an absolute mess at launch.

That’s according to IGN Reviews Editor Dan Stapleton, who revealed the embargo via Twitter.

We haven’t heard anything from EA locally about Sims 4 review copies, but if IGN US is having issues getting early access I’d expect nearly everyone to as well. That doesn’t outright mean that the Sims 4 will be a bad game, but if EA isn’t comfortable with press getting their hands on it before it hits shelves, that should tell you something.

The Sims 4 is being released on September 2nd exclusively on PC.
