Last week (18 January), the game’s developers announced plans to include pronouns during an online livestream. The Sims 4 fanbase has long petitioned for the inclusion of pronouns to be added to the Sims franchise.

Last year fans put together a petition calling for the social simulation game to include pronouns. The page, which calls for pronouns inclusivity for trans and nonbinary sims, has gained over 22,000 signatures. “Recent packs have been adding more gender-neutral language or choosing to call a Sim by their name instead of he/she, but the gendered language still lingers,” the petition reads.

The game’s development team announced they were “working towards” making the addition shortly after the call for inclusion. During last week’s livesteam, The Sims 4 developers revealed that players will be able to create the name of their character and assign their pronouns on the “Create-a-Sim” screen.
