We were already teased that bunk beds might come in a few days with The Sims 4 1.72 Patch to be released before the end of March 2021, but what else can we expect? Will se see The Sims 4 Generations on April of 2021? 😱
Sims 4 1.72 Laundry List [Likely Future Patch Notes] Introduction
Welcome to the first publication of the Laundry List where we’ll share a list of the top community concerns that we’re currently investigating and hope to have resolved in the upcoming patch.
These concerns were reported by players who help us continue our work of improving the user experience on a regular basis.
Please note that some topics can be tricky and require an extended investigation on our end, so even though we are actively investigating it’s not a guarantee that we’ll have an immediate fix for it in the upcoming patch.
Also note that this is just a list of the “top” concerns. There are more topics that we saw reported by players that are not listed and being worked on.EA Official Website

When an adult sim grounds a teen sim by using the phone, the teen sim can't be controlled to do anything without the action being called "stealthily", which gives a tense moodlet for breaking grounding. Also, the adult sim autonomously reprimands the teen sim for every performed action.
What do you expect to see? Only using the phone or similar actions should be restricted to stealth mode, not natural things like using the bathroom or doing homework.
Base Game: Puddles After Drinking Water

The Sims 4 Nifty Knitting: Sims Can't Resume Knitting
Bug Description: Get your sim to knit by clicking on furniture or the knitting object in their inventory.
What happens when the bug occurs? Rather than go to knit like before the sim will stand around. It appears that this can affect Sims doing other things too such as bathing, cleaning up. They sometimes show that something is in their way despite said item being at the opposite end of the lot. If they do go to knit, they'll go sit at the pool no matter the weather not the couch, for example, which was selected.
What do you expect to see? Sims will sit down to knit somewhere as they would before.
The Sims 4 Get to Work: Can't Fulfill Task to Transform Grass at Science Lab
Bug Description: It might work to play the Science Career without "Get Famous" until the "transform grass" task pops up.

There is no tall grass to transform for the "transform some grass" task; Can't see any tourists when supposed to interact with one for a task; When supposed to either drink a tainted serum or give one away, if giving away, it doesn't fulfill the task. Drinking works, but it should also work when giving a drink away, since it's in the task's description; Running out of plants to water.

Conclusion / Expectations...
So far that's what we may expect from The Sims 4 Patch 1.72, to be released near the end of the month of March of 2021, plus bunk beds...
Are you mostly excited for the fixes, the new bunk beds or the announcement for the next DLC Content / Theme? Will they finally release The Sims 4 Generations, or is it too much to expect? I would love to see proper elevators and spiral staircases, like the ones we had on The Sims 3... 😇
