The Sims FreePlay no longer supports Windows Phone

After a brief period of relatively positive time, Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform is once again struggling to stay afloat. After losing important business including support for Minecraft, Windows Phone is now losing support for the Sims FreePlay as well. This doesn’t necessarily mean people won’t be able to play the game anymore, but rather they’ll have to limit themselves to already available content with that no new content will be released for it.

Troubling news for Windows Phone players

The announcement came from none other than EA itself, which hurts players even more especially after the recent return of  Minecraft to the platform. It wasn’t reintroduced completely free of consequence, however, as users were required to update their operating systems to Windows 10 Mobile if they wanted to play the game.

The developer clarifies the situation

The developers of The Sims FreePlay released a statement shedding more light on the situation:

The Day care update from April 2017 will be the final new content for the Windows Phone platform. We’ll still be able to provide technical support for current issues.

Additionally, those that fire up the game will also be greeted with a message that says that the developer is no longer able to keep pumping out updates for the platform. The good thing is that the app is still available in the Store for those interested in trying it out. But with no more planned updates, The Sims FreePlay is a pastime that will get stale quick.
