The Sims 4 audience has exceeded 70 million people, according to Maxis. This made the game the most popular part of the series.

The Sims 4 was able to achieve such success largely due to the fact that in October 2022, its basic version became free. According to the developers, after switching to the freeplay, The Sims 4 was downloaded more than 16 million times, and the average number of weekly active users increased by 53%.

The Sims 4 was released on PC in 2014. Three years later, it appeared on the PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
