Sims 4 Growing Together may be one of the best Sims 4 packs yet, but what comes next? After the Sims 4 Greenhouse Haven Kit and the Sims 4 Basement Treasures Kit, I'm diving into a timeline and predictions for what we can expect for everything from the hot summer base game update to the timeline for an upcoming expansion pack or game pack.
So when could this all happen? First, we know we’ve gotten a roadmap that lasts through (or until June)
We’ve already gotten 2 of those kits, so 2 kits remain, as well as the hot summer update. We tend to get kits in pairs, and since we’ve already gotten 2 bb kits, at least one of the remaining kits being CAS seems reasonable.
Theories for the hot update include: Caliente refresh (Caliente= hot in Spanish), pool update and/or swimming items, and/ or some form of a romantic update or dating app. But what happens either at the end of June or July?
Well, often, a base game update comes before a new pack- so it’s not too wild to think we’ll get a summer pack. For this, let’s look at the timeline for past sims 4 packs:
As you can see, these are popular months for a sims 4 pack. Since we just had an expansion pack, it may be that we get a game pack next- and the final second expansion pack for 2023 in November. Still, this of course is speculation, and it’s hard to say for sure.
Regardless of when the next Sims 4 pack comes, we have many clues as to what it could be. First, consider this survey from Digital Spy. Though it is not an official Sims 4 poll, it did have a large sample size, and we’ve already gotten some of the most popular ideas:
Other ideas? Perhaps even stronger is the official Sims 4 2020 survey. Some of these concepts have already come in base game updates and packs, yet many also remain:
Of these remaining ideas the following seem most plausible: bands, modern love and romance, maybe heists, and malls. (See this speculation video on why malls could come to Sims 4 or a concept for a band pack in Sims 4).
Next, we add in build buy item descriptions from the new Sims 4 kits, which are filled with time travel hints. Those also align with a Sim Guru twitter poll from 2018:
So what do these predictions leave us? Well, it’s becoming harder to predict what Sims 4 pack will come next, but some of the most likely ideas include:
Simply put? There are still many possible packs for Sims 4 after Growing Together- and the next pack could come as soon as Summer 2023. Will it be a hot Summer? Guess we’ll have to wait to see. You Can Watch My Full Video Here.

It’s been months since the sims 4 update for console controls- and the team has finally responded, but many sims 4 players aren’t happy. The update in January changed console controls and has made building and gameplay a challenge for many. On April 27th, a sims 4 community responded.
Check out the featured short and details in the video below.
More about the update
The update that was released April 26th, 2023, also re-enables the "lose tooth" feature from The Sims 4 Growing Together expansion pack. The feature allows Sims to lose their teeth, and it has been fixed after some issues. The update also fixes an issue that was causing subtle adjustments to the appearance of Sims in the April 18th update. Any Sim that was created prior to the April 18th update should return to looking as they did before. The update is available for PC and Mac with version numbers 188.8.131.520 and 184.108.40.2060, respectively, and for consoles with version 1.75.
