How to Get the Most Out of Your Winx Club Characters
It’s the end of an era for Winx Clubs, the wildly popular digital video game service launched in 2009.
Now, the company is moving to a new format: it’s shutting down.
Winx is no longer owned by Activision Blizzard, the game developer behind many of the company’s popular titles, and it’s no longer a part of the Activision Blizzard-owned games division.
The move comes just days after the company announced that it had been sold to a group of investors led by former Zynga CEO Mark Pincus, a longtime Winx user.
In a statement, Activision Blizzard said it is shutting down Winx, which was part of its gaming platform portfolio.
The company said it would be retiring the Winx Game Club, which includes more than 2 million members.
“We are deeply saddened to inform our members and those who loved the Winxx Game Club that we are shutting it down and discontinuing it in the coming weeks,” the company said.
The Winx team is not being replaced, said Winx Co-Founder Ryan McNeil in a statement.
The closure of the WinX Club was announced on Thursday, and the company did not say whether the team would remain online.
“Our Winx community has been a wonderful asset to our platform, and we wish them well in their new endeavors,” McNeil said.
“While we do not know what this means for the Winxes existing members, we do know that we will continue to be available to our fans for their entertainment, and will continue our mission of helping new players find the best way to explore the gaming industry.”
For years, Winx has provided players with an array of gaming options, including virtual reality, and other games that offer the chance to take control of characters in an immersive virtual world.
The service also provides access to the company servers for video game developers to build new games.
It has grown to become a popular choice among gamers for new games that are built for mobile devices.
“This is a big deal, and a huge disappointment for our players,” McAndrew said in a tweet.
“With all of the talk about what the future holds for gaming, the Win x team is one of the most well known and trusted brands in gaming.”
The Win x Team had been running its own Winx app, the Playx app for Android and iOS, for years, but it was discontinued earlier this year.
It was previously owned by a different company, and was purchased by Pincu last year.
“Winx’s demise is not about us, it’s about the games industry,” McNeal said.
Activision Blizzard is a major shareholder in Activision Blizzard.
Pincushion said the company will not be releasing any statements about the closure of Winx or about the sale.
