The Sims 4 web domain appears to have been registered by EA, with the game's unveiling expected on Monday (May 6).
The studio is holding a conference call tomorrow and has promised to make a major announcement related to the world-creation franchise, according to a NeoGAF forum post.
The new web domain, thesims4.com, is already active and links back to the official Sims site.
EA will continue to support The Sims 3 this year, with the Island Paradise, Dragon Valley and Movie Stuff expansion packs scheduled for release in the coming months.
Released in 2009, The Sims 3 and its add-ons continue to chart highly in the weekly PC chart.
It has been speculated that The Sims 4 could require an always-online connection like the latest Sim City sequel. (nooooooooooo)
