We'll see him before?
Many of us thought that this is a conceptual artwork Willow Creek. Kotaku contacted EA on this. Here are their answers:
"It's really cool to see these old conceptual graphics on the web. During the development of the game, the artists in the studio of The Sims have discovered many different things and was made a pile of graphic concept. Our team looked at a number of different visual styles, locations and even periods of time. This is the pre-production. As already understand, just because it is a conceptual artwork, does not mean he had any intention to create something."
I think the last sentence is not entirely true. In the early pictures of the game, we saw the city very similar to that of conceptual artwork:
I still do not know if EA will add sometime this city into the game, but we can be sure that it has been created!
