@Salome1504 @alh110 @kobijohamm43 and @natalie6088  I've moved your posts into this master thread for questions about the update.  There's no official word yet, but you can see in this thread that EA employees are still committed to the project.

With the Corona virus going on I'm sure the release date will probably be pushed out further.

When will the sims 3 64bit be released?

★ Novice

Since the coronavirus outbreak I have been pretty bored, I turned to sims 3 and with a suprise it won’t work. I have done my research and realised the MacBook updated has stopped it from working due to the sims 3 being a 32bit game.

 

when will it be released?

@sophsoph20  Sorry, there's no news yet.  You can see from this thread though that EA is still committed to the project.

 

In the interim, you could theoretically partition your Mac's hard drive and install Windows on one side, if you have the storage to spare (ideally, 256 GB for Windows, with 50 GB free left over for macOS); or you could install Mojave and the game on an external hard drive, if you have at least temporary access to a Mac that hasn't been updated to Catalina.  Let me know if you'd like more information on either of these options.
