After that, it launched a range of more Sim games, though these weren't as successful. In 1997, it was acquired by Electronic Arts. In 2000, The Sims was launched, becoming the best selling game and spawning several expansion packs and spin-offs. In 2004, it became absorbed into EAs corporate office and after The Sims 2: Pets, it's logo was dropped from games altogether.
