An Update on Sellbot Field Offices

Posted by The Toontown Team on September 12, 2020 at 11:00 AM

Back at ToonFest 2018, we took the stage to announce a huge new update that was coming soon to Toontown: Sellbot Field Offices. The secret that keen-eyed viewers might notice, however... Is that they still aren't here. As often happens in game development, our vision for this update has changed significantly over the years, and in retrospect we absolutely announced it much too early.

Because of how much excitement has been generated about this expansion, we want to make sure that we’re entirely clear about what you can expect when it comes to Sellbot Field Offices at this year’s event.

Toontown Rewritten's biggest expansion yet!

What you won’t see during ToonFest:

  • A release date for the Sellbot Field Offices expansion
  • Elements of the expansion that are being intentionally hidden until release (The Boiler Room, Toon Resistance Hideout, etc.)
  • Sellbot Field Offices 2: Dawn of the Ice Desks
  • Anything cloud-related

What you will see during ToonFest:

  • Updates to previously-revealed Sellbot Field Office gameplay footage
  • Estimates about what’s left to complete for the expansion
  • Changes that our team has made to improve development efficiency for current and future content
  • Smaller things we’ve worked on outside of this expansion

One of our highest priorities for the Sellbot Field Offices expansion is to make sure that the update is full of outrageously fun and carefully-crafted Toontown content that will give all of us Toontown fans something new to enjoy for years to come.

Our absolute highest priority, however, is to create this content without sacrificing the health of the Toons who are putting so much of their free time into developing it for us. This means that we haven't been able to create this content as fast as we hoped for, but we will continue to work as quickly as possible to complete Sellbot Field Offices without sacrificing our standards for mental health and quality.

We have learned and grown a lot as developers and individuals during our time working on this expansion, and will continue to learn as much as we can as we finish it up. In the future, we hope that the lessons we've learned will better equip us to be better developers to implement the ambitious dreams that we all know Toontown deserves -- without repeating our past mistakes.

Thank you all for your patience, understanding, and amazing support as we wrap up this expansion! We hope that you’ll tune in during the "Behind the Tooniverse" segment of ToonFest to hear more about what we’re doing to finish strong.

Miss Halloween said on September 12, 2020 at 12:28 PM
Yay! A new thing to liven up Toontown! I’ve been waiting (and I know others have too) for this for a long time. It’s almost time to dust off my ol’ gag bag and battle some new cog foes!

Chip said on September 12, 2020 at 12:53 PM
Thank you all for all the hard work!

Steel Blue Cat said on September 12, 2020 at 12:54 PM
If I can give constructive criticism, never reveal future game content if you aren't sure of delivering it some time after announcement and/or it's still under development. This is mostly to avoid announcing earlier about game content that is still subject to change, disappointing players consequently, as it's been 2 years like you said since Sellbot Field Office's first mention in 2018's toonfest. Still, up to you to do what suits you better. Said this, good luck with the upcoming toonfest. :)

Pawsitively Purrfect said on September 12, 2020 at 12:56 PM
Thanks very much for the update and for all the work you do. Be well and healthy! This can wait!

Take all the time you need, the game has already been out for 6 years. 1 or 2 more years wont really make a difference. Peace and love.

Can't imagine what the community would think once these field offices drop, keep up the great work!

Dog Delight said on September 13, 2020 at 4:28 PM
Take as much time as you need! We appreciate all that you do, especially in regards to taking mental health into consideration. The game wouldn't be up and running without you.

Crush said on September 13, 2020 at 4:33 PM
thank you so much for bringing Toontown back. My daughters and I played when they were young, and its brought nostalgia to us, to continue to bond over this one of a kind game. They are teens and young adults now. Much respect.

I forget said on September 13, 2020 at 4:59 PM
I appreciate the honesty.

Hissturbia said on September 13, 2020 at 6:25 PM
We appreciate all that the team does to provide us with a completely free version of our favorite game to play--any expansions and new releases are just icing on the cake!

Cuddles said on September 13, 2020 at 10:13 PM
You guys are doing an amazing job and that is likely because you are taking your time. The way I see it, you guys are keeping a dream alive and that can't be done through overworking yourselves. I am beyond grateful for all the work that's being put in, so thank you!

Little Mizzenmuffin said on September 14, 2020 at 1:40 AM

Christine Gem said on September 14, 2020 at 1:21 PM
Take your time, I'd rather wait for an amazing update then get a low quality update.

Princess Roxy Glittermuffin said on September 14, 2020 at 5:40 PM
We are grateful, thank you TTR team!

Jojo said on September 14, 2020 at 10:42 PM
We all get to play for free and have patience. That's a good trade-off for me

santa dog said on September 15, 2020 at 2:29 AM
thank you so much for this update! as a devoted player since 2015, i look forward to more of this amazing game!

Toonsworth said on September 15, 2020 at 7:22 AM
Seems a little down, truly. I've been sitting here with my foghorn trees waiting to buy the new Ice Desk, & I'll have to wait longer? Shame. Reminds me of a story, I was out on Toon Town Central, & this Cold Caller, or was it a Short Change... I can't recall, anyways, this starter cog was standing around the lake trying to catch the fish by hand, so I asked him "Friend, what are you doing?" He then went on a tangent on how he always wanted a fish of his own saying, "The big guys don't let any of us have any pets, I'm thinking if I can find a dull fish, maybe I can pass it in a breeze." Maybe it was a Cold Caller So I said to him, "Buddy, you're not gonna find dull fish here, might I suggest the docks or the dream verse." But he wouldn't listen, so I went to dreamland, got out my fishing pole & caught him a moon fish, a little too spooky to be a toon fish anyways. The cog said thanks & flew off with his fish, what a swell day that was.

Clift Cat said on September 15, 2020 at 8:55 AM
Thanks very much for all the work you guys have put into TTR.

Princess Ruby Wonderbumper said on September 15, 2020 at 3:54 PM
It doesn't matter how long it takes to update OR reveal future game content.. Thanks for letting us know that you are working on them. If a toon can not resist the temptation or accept time it takes to PERFECT or complete a newer or better version, then he isn't a toon at all! He's an "old Fogey"!!!!!

Kirby said on September 15, 2020 at 6:46 PM
OK awesome

The Last Crocodile Alive said on September 15, 2020 at 11:36 PM
Dang, I MUST JOIN!
