Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer


Webkinz World may have just celebrated its tenth anniversary, but GANZ has further plans in store for Webkinz World members.  A new secret project, titled "Webkinz World X", will be previewed over the coming months and is expected to release this Summer. GANZ has announced that this project will bring "a huge leap forward in the look and feel of the game" while "keeping everything you love" still within Webkinz World. The first preview for Webkinz X was the image included on the left, which is to "play an important part of the new Webkinz X."    Stay tuned to Webkinz Newz throughout the coming weeks, as Ganz has promised more sneak peeks and information in the near future.
 
It is uncertain at this time what kind, and how much of Webkinz World, will be changed.  Although this change may be unwelcome by some long term players, especially with so much uncertanty about the changes and direction of this beloved game, it should also bring members some comfort that GANZ appears committed to improving and updating Webkinz World. A welcomed change to the online world of gaming, and what one could consider to be a great sign for a game who has just entered its eleventh year of existence. 
 

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Wow, I can't wait to see what Ganz has in store for us. Change can be painful, but I have faith.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Thanks so much MissGnomie for the update!!

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Hmmm, very interesting, and a bit scary. But since we have no choice in the matter, I prefer to be hopeful and excited about some new and wonderful changes!

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

This is exciting! I have no idea what it could be. Thanks for the info!

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Hmm... I wonder what this could be... I hope not too much changes. Also, I hope no features leave. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to this.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

All I am hoping for is maybe Webkinz will change a bit, new things get added, and nothing gets removed, and I hope more for all members, and they stop focusing on Deluxe membership.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

I doubt it'll be extreme changes, as they cannot risk irritating folks to the point they stop buying the product. There was too much ire (anger) about the special pets collection that folks would've had to dish out lots of money for digital rare pets to not risk that either.

That said, is it just me or does this look like a Pokeball? Not that I think they'd go that route; however, it just is a bit odd.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

honestly i dont play as much anymore, I still love to log in and see whats happening though, i really hope that this will bring new life to webkinz again! If it was some major change that made the game really popular again i think i would come back and play a lot again, I think GANZ has to make some good changes to webkinz world soon, hopefully it will be the same webkinz world we know and love, but something that will be a major improvement to the whole site that will make people want to play again.

I have faith in GANZ,. I know they can do it, yes the tenth anniversary is amazing, which kept a lot of old players such as myself coming back again, but we need something new, and hopefully this new project will breathe new life and fun into the game again.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Many people commented on the look of the ball resembling pokemon. I think it looks like a globe, of WW. I hope they bring some of the good things from WF. I also hope they give us a new point of view. I would like to see things from the pets eye level instead of just from above. I can never really see the portraits we get every year, with all the pets. It is nice they are asking for our comments and suggestions now.

LOL where have you been for the last ten years, from what I've seen in recent years it will be subscription only , and loaded with glitches.

I thought the 10 year thing was a fiasco of 8 accounts not one has a 10 year dragon, all did the steps watched the video,and received the disappearing message with code that didn't work. I have no faith, and I'm tired of the glitches, maybe done forever !!!

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

I don't think this going to be a good thing. They'll probably just make more deluxe things and take out everything that makes webkinz webkinz,

However, I think what they did for their 10th anniversary was unexpected but it was a nice change. So idk, maybe these changes will be okay. I really hope so!

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Webkinz has certainly changed over a numerous amount of years, for some people they loved the updates but some didn't. I have hope that they will make webkinz as strong as it can be because webkinz is not just a game it is a memory that cannot fade.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

I'm sure it will be awesome! Ganz always has made upgrades fun for everyone and all members have always been very pleased with the flawless changes.
[sarcasm font/]
lol just kidding. I'm hoping it's a positive change for everyone.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Thank you, MissGnomie, for the update!

I've returned to Webkinz (a handful of months ago) after a long absence and was disappointed to see that several of the old glitches still haven't been fixed, promised upgrades/changes still haven't been implemented, and more things have been taken away from regular players. And, the changes that have been made, such as the 'improved' WShop (I can't find anything anymore) are confusing and time-wasting.

While I find myself enjoying everything Ganz has put into the 10th anniversary celebrations, I'm not optimistic for this change.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

i think this Webkinz X will be something tied in with social media, youtube, twitter, etc. I am sure linking and sending WW members to these sites means more income for Ganz.

Looking at the Webkinz X graphics it looks to me like the Daily Care Heart is on the ball. also it looks like the two yellow items are locks to unlock the "ball". What would be inside?? Maybe this graphic is only an introduction to X.

Hope there aren't many new changes, since introducing the new map, we have had enough new changes, there have been enough of things going over to Deluxe.

Deluxe equals more money for Ganz
Social media equals more money for Ganz. (Should not be luring kids out of WW safe site. No NO)
Ads all over equals more money for Ganz. (Inappropriate ads for kids)

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

After living for 28 years in a big casino town out West, where the only thing constant was change, I love change. I am just so happy that Ganz seems to be committed to all of us with such gigantic investments in Webkinz. As always, there will be lots of complaints as a lot of people just can't seem to be positive but I welcome change and especially improvements. Thanks Ganz for going forward with Webkinz.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

It would be cool if your Webkinz evolved, sort of like Pokemon.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

These upgrades are a good sign. There are always rumors that Ganz is going to shut down WW, but it is less likely they will make a bunch of big changes if the plan is to close the site.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

Hmm... I don't know if I like the sound of this. We'll see.

Re: Webkinz World to debut "Webkinz X" This Summer

If the new stuff is IN ADDITION TO rather than REPLACING what already exists, I'm totally fine with it. If they start messing around with the basics, I'll be unhappy. I've found over the years (I've played since 2006) that whenever they start touting "wonderful, exciting changes!" it's almost always something I don't like, doesn't work well (hello, new W-shop!) or I just don't use. Big exception has been this 10-year anniversary stuff -- I'm amazed at how generous they've been and how much fun the events have been.

I don't mean to sound like a curmudgeon, but I'm not expecting to be thrilled whatever Webkinz X may be. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised and it turns out to be something wonderful ... I'm not holding my breath, though
