Right up until the last minute, we hoped it was a rumor. But it happened -- the Poptropolis Games have returned to the seas from whence they came.
From the Creator's Blog.
This Island has sunk into the sea and is not currently available. Will it rise again? Only the Creators know.
From the Island Tour.
I don't usually double-post, but today I posted two Journal articles. Click here to read the first one, about Dr. Hare's plot for world domination!
Poptropolis Games sunk on January 24th, as promised... see http://blog.poptropica.com/2013/01/and-just-like-that-its-gone.html for the proof. But the question is, are the Games really gone forever? They're meant to stay down for another 100 years, but the Members cards for Poptropolis say "Poptropolis 2012", as the picture below will prove. As the island was released with the London 2012 Olympic Games, could it return for the 2016 Games, scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil? It seems very likely, and why would the Creators delete such an amazing and fun island? They say that they love it themselves, twice:
The second example instructs you to check for updates on the Creator's Blog. So, it seems likely that the Games will return. And they're not really gone yet... my Poptropica account is currently on Poptropolis Games! So I'm going to win it just one last time. But if they're gone forever... oh well... I guess all good things must come to an end.
