With the rise of COVID-19, Habbo has seen a spike of users returning to the game they loved so long ago. Most countries are on lockdown, with many not being allowed to leave their homes. Old users of the game have returned, bringing with them old furni, and money to be spent on credits, but what about new players? Is this a golden opportunity for Habbo? Read on to find out more..
Love it or hate it, many of the old Habbo users have been long gone for a while now, leaving behind insane rares, and money for Sulake. They have grown up, got jobs, and have started families. In my eyes, the hotel has seen a huge decrease in players, and struggled to pull in younger crowds. Now yes, I have seen younger players around the hotel, but the vast majority have been here for years.
With the COVID-19 shutdown, Habbo could take full advantage of getting new players in. Teenagers are going to have a lot of time on their hands, and not much to do. Habbo could really take full advantage of this by airing ads on YouTube, or even on TV. With the increased Habbo population we have at the moment, teenagers will love this game, and then they will tell their friends about this awesome game called Habbo Hotel.
Like I have said before, we have a lot of older players coming in, increasing our population, and probably making Sulake a nice amount of money. If Habbo makes the most of this, we could see Habbo come back to the old days, and have packed rooms. Now is the time, and they have to make the most of it, drawing in more players for Habbo 2020!
It is now, or never Habbo. Make the most of it!
What do you think? Is this the ideal time for Habbo to invest in marketing the game for new players?
