Moshi Monsters Might Be Abandoned

In July 2013, Mind Candy released Moshi Monsters Village on GooglePlay, a 3D city-builder published by GREE and developed by Tag Games. After GREE UK shut-down,[15] Mind Candy decided to take over the game as publisher, leaving Tag Games to the development. The game was relaunched on Apple devices on December 18, 2013 right before the release of the movie.

In December 2013, Mind Candy published the companion app Talking Poppet, also developed by Tag Games.

In February 2014, Moshi Karts was released on iOS by Mind Candy.

In early 2015 Mind Candy released an app called "World of Warriors" Ever since Moshi Monsters has not been largely updated and it has been over three years since the last official mission was released, the next mission was never made. It is almost certain that Mind Candy have abandoned Moshi Monsters for World of Warriors. The Daily Growl "Official online newspaper on MoshiMonsters.com) has been updated but is filled with filler puzzles and news has been absent for months. It is still true though that The "Daily Growl" Is still updated.

Rumors In the Janurary of 2016 A huge Moshi Rumor about Moshi Monsters was that it was restarting due to fix bugs, unused accounts, and update largely. Although it has not happened quite yet the rumors linger.

Population

in the month October, 2013 it was reported that a little under half of the population is just unused accounts. Which would mean that about 45000000 members have abandoned their Moshi account. 40% of the population is Teens now, 20% of the population is adults, and the rest (40%) are children. No surprise though, for Moshi Monsters has been out for for a little over 7 years.

Safety

The adult population of Moshi Monsters take Moshi "seriously" and take nearly 2-4 hours of their day rating other members rooms and leaving nice messages on their board. Moderators say "Although Moshi Monsters is one of the safest online games in The UK, US, Canada, And Australia be monitoring your children's friends list. Watch out for the 20-60 year olds (adult population) They've devoted so much to Moshi that it's just not safe for your child to talk with them."
