Webkinz Friends fans were surprised by the following announcement this morning (Click here for image of WF post on FB):
Dear Webkinz Friends players,
After long discussions and exhausting all other options we have decided to shut down Webkinz Friends.
Webkinz Friends has been a wonderful game to work on, and we continue to be impressed with the versions of Kinzville that our players have created. Unfortunately the game never found the audience it needed, which limited our ability to add new content and give the game the attention it deserved.
For this reason, we will be shutting down Webkinz Friends to allow us to focus on our core games, Webkinz and Amazing World.
As of today Webkinz Friends will no longer be available to new players and will no longer accept payments. Existing players like you will be able to continue playing until August 31, 2014. After that date the game with no longer be available. This will affect both the Facebook and iPad versions of the game.
To make your final month as enjoyable as possible, we have removed the Energy requirements from the game. For those of you who have not been able to unlock all of the Webkinz.com prizes, we will be slowly adding these prizes to Webkinz World so that everyone has the chance to win them.
We want to thank each and every one of you for playing Webkinz Friends and hope to see you in Webkinz World.
