Sources confirm to GameSpot that the sequel to Maxis' lifestyle sim will be out this fall.
Today at E3, GameSpot learned the release date for the Sims 2. The sequel to the best-selling PC series of all time will hit PCs on September 17, according to a source close to the game's development. While game retailers had speculated a late 2004 Sims 2 release--EB Games is listing a tentative date of September 6th--EA had not made public any hard information since the game missed its January 2004 ship date. When queried, EA reps told GameSpot to expect more official information on the Sims 2 "soon."
