Dutch site SP Zone
has found a thread
, a limited forum, that the next expansion pack for the Sims 2 would be called Nightlife. The information comes from the jewelcase in the Sims 2 University, that has shipped and the first people have received already:
"Send your Sims out for a night on the town in the Sims 2 Nightlife Expansion Pack. Will they stay out late on a romantic dinner date or dance 'til dawn at a nightclub? Find out what else night has to offer starting Fall 2005!"
An image, as seen below, has been posted on forums by several users. On this page
at the TSR forums
Steve Bonham has said that it was made clear at the SIMposium, that the second expansion would be announced this week. Unclear is if the information at Add-ons.de
is correct. That site claims the second expansion pack will have pets in it, but there's no confirmation about it. There is another thread
as well, at ModTheSims2
, that also talks about Nightlife. In these threads, features like restaurants and the fangs of the woman on the picture are discussed.
EA has also registered TheSims2Nightlife.com
, and although it doesn't work yet it's another pointer that it might be true. It's unsure if the expansion pack will indeed be Nightlife or not, but of course we'll keep you updated with any new information. With thanks to Pyrobon at the MTS2 Forum

[Update: 28 February 21:40]
EA Europe has requested us to take offline the posted image of the supposed new expansion from this site. They has no further comments on the news, though by now rumours on several (mentioned) forums are growing stronger as University has been released by several shops in the US and the jewel case insert has probably been seen by many people by now. We'll keep you updated on the matter.
