Electronic Arts is working on The Sims 3, according to Sims studio creative director Rod Humble.
Speaking on the QuarterToThree forum, often a hotbed of industry gossip, Humble said: "For Sims 3 there will be new information soon."
This comes in the same week that EA's Nancy Smith said to expect a pair of new MySims Wii and DS games this year, along with SimCity Creator and SimAnimals.
Humble mentions those too, and adds that apart from The Sims 2 Freetime, there are no new Sims 2 SKUs planned for this year.
Indeed, he says there will be fewer Sims products over all than in 2007.
Thanks to Rock Paper Shotgun for pointing us in the direction of Humble's comments.
