New Poptropica: Delayed? Will it ever be released?


Hey everyone, it’s Perfect Sky!

So as most of us have noticed over the past few months, many theories about possible release dates for the New Poptropica have been spreading around the community. But now, with only five days left, most people agree that the game is most likely not going to be launched “later this year.”


Earlier this month, some people thought the New Poptropica could be released on Christmas (Dec 25th). But Christmas is over now, and just as I thought, the game was not released.

Another theory I’ve heard recently, is the possibility of a New Years release. But as cool as that would be, I highly doubt it would happen. Considering it didn’t happen as a Christmas miracle, we probably won’t have any more luck for New Years. Sure, it’s possible, but let’s not get our hopes up.

The Creators are probably very busy, and taking a short break due to the holidays. All we know from a recent Creators’ Blog post, is that something interesting is going to be discussed on the blog soon.


Two Creators wrote that post? Hmm, interesting…

Although we don’t know exactly what this is about, it’s obviously something important. It could be as big as trailer for the New Pop, or just an announcement about the costume design contest. Since they specified that it’s something to “talk about,” it’s possible that they could be discussing a general release time. We can take a guess about what this could be, but really, there’s no way to know for sure, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Now, there’s one major topic I’d like to cover. Recently, I’ve heard some talk about the New Pop being cancelled (or just delayed another whole year, or longer). I strongly believe this is false.

The thing is, the Creators know what they’re doing. As they stated in the first announcement, the Creators have been working on this project for a while. They wouldn’t have announced the plan of a new game to the public until they knew it was official, and enough progress had been made for the project to definitely continue. If this idea was still at the point where it could be cancelled at any moment, and no serious decision had been made, the Creators would not have announced it.

Of course, some issues could’ve come up along the way, causing the game development to take longer than expected, but that doesn’t mean it has been cancelled. Even though it hasn’t been released as soon as we expect, the Creators most likely have a general idea when it will be finished. Again, I’m sure they would not have announced the New Pop until they knew they would be able to finish it.

I personally don’t think a delay would last any longer than a month or two, but of course, we don’t know for sure.

Until we receive the news later this week, whatever that would be, it’s best to remain patient, and be understanding of any issues that could’ve caused a delay.

Well, that’s all for now. Feel free to share your thoughts about this in the comments below!

A Perfect Introduction to a New Author

Hey everyone

My name is Perfect Sky, but you can call me PS for short. Lots of you may already know me from the PHC, my YouTube channel, or the guest posts I’ve previously written for the PHB.

So, as some of you probably heard on the PHC, my birthday was two days ago. Before my birthday, I already knew what most of my gifts would be. They mostly consisted of money, gift cards, and chocolate, which is pretty much all I wanted. But little did I know when I woke up in the morning, that I would receive a message from Fishy that evening, inviting me to join the PHB. I was shocked!


Now, for some background. I started playing Poptropica in February 2008, so I’ve absolutely loved the game for nearly 9 years now. My very first Poptropican was named Sticky Foot, although I don’t remember the username. I made several different Poptropicans, until I finally made my current account in 2009, and decided to stick with it. My username is stupiddirectord, if you want to friend me. I still don’t know why I chose that username, all I remember is that I just completed Spy Island on a different account, and I was mad at Director D.

In the summer of 2013, I created a YouTube channel, where I post Poptropica movies. I was originally inspired to make Pop videos by a channel called PoptropicaStars, which had a series called Fashion Fever. Yeah, I was obsessed. So, I’ve been making videos for a few years now.

Joining YouTube was my first experience in the Poptropica community. However, I didn’t know how big the community actually was until I joined Discord this past summer. I don’t want to keep blabbing on about this, so feel free to check out my MPIP for more details.

Well, that’s all for now. Once again, I want to thank all the authors for this amazing opportunity, and I’m really looking forward to posting here on the PHB!
