Announced Zynga will close the original FarmVille web game on Facebook at the end of the year, the company announced.
Like many other browser-based games from the 2000s, Farmville was built using Flash technology, which was the most widely used and widely used technology in the development and distribution of multimedia content on the web.
Zynga said: After 11 years since it first launched in 2009, we are officially announcing the closure of the original FarmVille game via Facebook.
She added, “As we mentioned earlier, Adobe will stop distributing and updating the Flash player for all web browsers, and Facebook will stop supporting Flash games on its platform completely after December 31, 2020, which means FarmVille is directly affected as a result.”
The game was launched in 2009 and has had over 10 million daily active users in less than two months.
At its peak in popularity, it gained about 30 million active players every day, driving Zynga into record revenue.
A portable release and a sequel followed, but the subsequent games have not captured the charm of the original.
Farmville players will be able to continue with in-app purchases until November 17, after which the payment system will be closed, and the game will not accept any in-app payments, and no refunds will be processed during this time.
You can still play the game until December 31, after which it will be closed permanently, and (Zynga) says: A mobile version of (FarmVille 3) will be available worldwide soon.
The company is looking forward to joining (Farmville 2: Tropic Escape) and (Farmville 2: Country Escape).
“We recognize that many of you have been with us since the start, which has helped build an amazing global community of players over the years who have enjoyed this game as much as we have enjoyed it, so we say thank you,” Zynga said.
It is reported that Adobe announced in 2017 that it plans to end support for Flash in 2020, and Flash is used among a number of websites that host games, videos and tutorials, all of which will stop working once support is removed from browsers.
