It's going to turn into The Sims. They are just going to keep releasing expansion after expansion, each one breaking the game a little bit more with out actually fixing anything. Leaving it to the community to fix it themselves. Of course, if it doesn't sell well, it'll likely just become vaporware. Because EA.
Funny thing is people keep buying the Sims expansions because it didn't have all the issues that this game has. I don't even know why they're bothering on making DLC content for this game though since everyone's pretty much abandoned it. If the expansion allowed bigger cities or terraforming that would've been good since they'd be addressing the major complaints with the game.
