    As if the current UI looks great. At least we're getting a UI that is consistent.

    Sulake CEO confirmed that #Habbo2020 will launch in summer.

    Sulake CEO Valtteri Karu has confirmed that #Habbo2020 will launch in summer. CEO Karu and Finnish Community Manager Talistar were exceptionally interviewed inside hotel due to the governmental health restrictions.

    CEO Karu explains that Habbo has seen an exceptional rise on both global and regional user count during the last month. Talistar sees that Habbo offers its users a safe place to express themselves, and mentions LGBTQ+ community as a great example.

    Even though Habbo is almost 20 years old, according to CEO Karu it's still doing financially 'OK." The transition from Flash to Unity will bring many new features, but Karu is not to talk about them just yet.

    Valtteri Karu, CEO of Sulakke, has revealed in a magazine interview that the new generation Habbo with the working name # Habbo2020 will be released during the summer. You can read more about the changes brought about by the new Habbo in Fusion's other news.

    The editor of Helsingin Sanomat's Now supplement interviewed Karu, President and CEO, and Talistar, Community Director of Habbo Finland, exceptionally inside the hotel. CEO Karu sticks to his comments on the facts that follow the company's line, but Talistar also shares his own views in the interview. According to the community leader, Habbo’s popularity is also partly due to the permissiveness of the community: At Habbo, people can be just the way they want to be. Talistar says that Habbo is a paradise for rainbow youth, for example.

    CEO Karu says Habbo is in a relatively good financial position. Habbo turns 20 this year, but despite that, development work has not been forgotten, according to the CEO. Habbo's game engine will change from an older Flash plug-in to a more modern Unity platform, and CEO Karu will confirm the transition during the summer.


    With the new platform, mobile gaming will be easier and the hotel will look the same on all platforms. Other reforms are coming, but according to CEO Valtteri Karu, the time is not yet there.
    Rough Finnish translation which contains a bit more comments.

    Habbo 2020: beta phase

    https://puhekupla.com/en/news/4745

    Since the beginning of May, Sulake has been keeping secret dialogues with players from different communities about the beta phase of Habbo 2020, which is expected to start operating later this month. Officially, there is no public information on the matter.

    The start of the next phase will count on the help of select users from all communities to access the new version of Habbo, which will not be available to the general public. Some players have already been contacted and are awaiting further instructions from Sulake. Currently, no user has access to the new version of the game.

    HOW WILL THIS WORK?

    A beta phase means that a product is still in the development stage, that is, not fully finalized, but that it can be made available to a limited audience for the purpose of reporting bugs and feedback to developers. For this reason, only a few users will be able to access this version.

    The selection process has already started in some communities, following this flow:

    Local staffs choose users who will be able to access the beta version. Fansite members, ambassadors and builders may have a preference in the selection process. Each community can have its own selection criteria;

    Selected players are communicated directly within Habbo in order to confirm interest*. Ambassadors, fansites and builders can be communicated through other channels that they keep in touch with Habbo;

    After confirming users, they will receive further instructions on how the program will work. This phase has not yet occurred in any community.

    Not all communities have contacted players about this new phase. For now, this will be the selection criterion in each of them:

    No information
    8 unspecified users
    No information
    6 fansite members, 1 ambassador and 1 builder
    8 unspecified users
    3 fansite members, 3 users, 1 ambassador and 1 builder
    8 unspecified users
    3 fansite members, 2 ambassadors (also fansite members), 2 builders (also fansite members) and 1 user
    No information

    In some cases, fansites, ambassadors and builders may also indicate names. In principle, only 8 users from each community will be selected. But it is not clear whether this number may vary according to the size of each hotel. All of these players will access a single hotel, in English, along with staffs from the Habbo development team and local staffs will not be present. It is also not clear how this access will happen.. Users are expected to return to Habbo with feedback on the new game.

    It is expected that as of next Monday, Habbo Staffs from all communities will intensify the selection process and selected users will receive instructions on this new phase.

    It is not known whether or when the beta phase will be available to the general public, nor how long this phase will last. Habbo 2020 project was first announced last September, and since then, a series of publications on Habbo has been detailing a little about the new version of the game. The official launch of the new Habbo is expected for August, during the game's anniversary celebrations.

    * Be safe: forms on external websites or contacts directly via email is a scam.

    The sandbox is their test environment for possible upcoming features. The photos page suggest they're actively using it to test something. One can reason that it's the new client they're making. Fansite members are invited to give their opinion and/or test it. It makes sense if they'd use the sandbox environment for that purpose.

    Wouldn't really expect anything more or less 'new' about the actual renderer. They'll want to emulate the original renderer, otherwise it wouldn't really be Habbo anymore, 2020 or not.

    Sandbox is used for BAW todo their builds so they can't abuse giving out free stuff on the main hotel.
