Quoted from the link:
I have some important news to share with you all today. It’s never easy to say goodbye but today, we wish a fond farewell to our friend and colleague Rachel Franklin. She has decided to leave Maxis to explore new opportunities. We're going to miss her creative spark, her infectious enthusiasm, and the passion that she brought to the studio every day. I can definitely say I’m excited to see what she does next and will be cheering her on!

Rachel leaves Maxis stronger than ever. We’re all so excited by the incredible passion we see from you in The Sims 4 nearly two years after we first released the game. We’ve proven to you our commitment to regularly providing new experiences, like the recent Dining Out Game Pack and expansion to Create A Sim, and that won't change. We've got lots more planned for the months and years ahead that we can't wait to share with you.

We have a strong leadership team in place at Maxis and we're focused on one thing: delivering great things to you, our players. We're looking to fill Rachel's shoes, but in the meantime myself and all the other SimGurus will continue to connect with you and share our enthusiasm for the game and new things to come.

Hallelujah there is a God! applause applause applause applause  I for one will not miss her. Sorry if that sounds mean but she did kind of destroy The Sims 4 by saying that she didn't feel that an open world wasn't the real selling point in Sims 3, even though many players are crying for an open world and toddlers which at this point I really don't have an hope of there ever being that life cycle in S4. At last years GamesCom she literally embarrassed the whole simming community with that stupid dance routine that frankly EA/Maxis just can't get passed.

The whole Sims 4 game wasn't based on what we players wanted or would like to see in our game...it was what Rachel wanted and screw us.

I totally agree MamaJ! I think Sims4 is far off the mark of what players really want. I for one just installed all of my Sims3 game again. I just can't stay vested in Sims4 - it's such a disappointment. I wish her the best, but I really hope they bring someone in that will put the Sims Community's interests and wants front and center! We are after all the customer. Smile

Ah. I can hardly keep up with the local/national news these days. It does make me wonder if the game will improve or if it will change.

We can only hope that it will.
