Zynga is shutting down its famous web game Farm Ville on Facebook as the support for Flash games ends by the end of this year

Back in 2009, Zynga launched a game that suddenly became the rage of the town. Everyone started playing it on Facebook, and our notifications were bombarded with support requests from friends who were also a part of the game. However, sadly, all of this is going to come to an end now. Zynga has recently announced that they are going to shut down Farm Ville on Facebook because the social network is going to end its support for Flash games by 31st December 2020. This is the same date when Adobe is also going to shut down its Flash Player for good.

Therefore, Zynga has also chosen this unfateful date to bring an end to a game that brought them many awards, recognition, and popularity around the world.

The game on Facebook lets its players cultivate their farms by plowing, planting, and harvesting crops, and trees. Players have to take care of their farm animals, they have to collect eggs from their chickens, and milk their cows too.

The game was an instant hit with more than 10 million daily active users within two months of its launch. There came a time when the game saw huge popularity, with more than 30 million daily active users on Facebook. This was a record-breaking feat for Zynga also and this gave it the push to create more games like this for mobile platforms too. However, the original Farm Ville’s magic and charm could never be replicated or achieved through other subsequent games from the same developer.

Zynga has announced that it will facilitate in-game purchases until 17th November 2020. So, if you have any credits left or if you want to make any purchases in the game, you have to do it before the 17th of November. After this date, Zynga will not continue with any kind of transaction in the game on Facebook.

While it is sad news for many avid fans of Farm Ville, it is not all bleak and Farm Ville is not completely lost to us. There are some mobile versions of the game available too, and Zynga has announced that Farm Ville 3 is also going to come soon. So, if you want to continue experience the pleasure that virtual farming used to bring to you, you can still opt for the other alternates that the developer suggests.
