There weren't any real pictures because they didn't "announce" it. However, they did have some staff run on stage acting like frat boys. One was in a mascot outfit and they hooted and hollered and bumped chest and the other was dressed in a graduation outfit and threw his hat. So.. no dates mentioned, no pics given.. just a "HEY THIS WILL BE HERE TOO BUT WE WONT EVEN TOUCH ON IT" kinda thing. :D

So how is that an announcement? I know it's extremely unlikely they'd dress up as graduates, frat boys, and mascots for any reason other than hinting at a Uni EP but really, you call that an announcement?

When TWO head reps of the Sims 3 from the EA San Fran HQ have a full blown awkward convo on how their two dressed up staff members belong back in university, and then they throw puns into play. I believe we can call it official. It's obvious it's coming now, and it was a very creative and indirect yet direct way of announcing the game. Not to mention they had King and two other people all retro'd out for the announcement of 70's, 80's, 90's stuff, putting two and two together makes complete sense.

I'm thinking around March is when we may see it.

As for OFB, I have a very gut feeling that it won't be included in this EP, rather it will be the last and final EP for TS3. EA seems to be pushing out all the remakes in one shot, which is great! Saving the best for last.

Ben the producer said there's a LOT more coming in TS3; so I doubt Spring 2013 is close to the end of the run.

They might have mentioned that the two staff members belong in "University" (hint, hint), but maybe the EP won't necessarily be called university. It might just be centered around education in general, so university, colleges, pre-schools/kindergarten etc could all be included. I also think it would make implementing business into the EP easier/better, in a way. They might have just shown us the two staff members dressed as a graduate and a mascot to get the point across more clearly. We all thought the new SP would be called Decades stuff... So, who knows with this one? We'll just have to wait and see till the official announcement.

I'm only speculating though. I just think it would be more fun to have a more in dept version of the current education system we have in game. So they could expand on High School, AND add all the new stuff like Uni + Kindergarten etc. But then again, it could just be called University and still include all those things. (At least I hope). :D

Google definition of "Announcement":

Quote:
an·nounce·ment/əˈnounsmənt/
Noun:

A public and typically formal statement about a fact, occurrence, or intention.
The action of making such a statement.


Playing dressup on a fucking stage isn't an announcement. I'm not saying we're not getting some kind of education themed EP, but to say it's been announced is totally misleading and untrue.
