Farmville is shutting down after 11 years: What does it mean for the mobile versions

Time to move on!

A very popular simulation game on farming & planting, Farmville is finally shutting down its operation completely on 31st December 2020. The game was launched on Facebook in 2009 and since then has attracted many users to casual gaming on the social media platform. The game earned huge success, attracting players from all age groups, following its launch on Facebook and somehow created a genre of social media platform gaming.

The official creator, Zynga took to a Facebook post explaining the reason behind the closure of the game on the social media platform. The decision came in after Adobe decided to stop support of Flash Player and Facebook’s announcement of not supporting any Flash game from the beginning of 2021.

The post said,

Thank you is a small word but when fertilized with love and beautiful memories it means the world to us. So here’s a great BIG THANK YOU for farming with us through it all. Click here: http://bit.ly/Farmv

The post also stated that they would be supporting the in-game purchases till Nov 17, 2020, after which the payment system will be completely shut down, before the complete shutdown of the game on 31st December 2020, the same day Facebook would stop the service of Flash game.

Exciting activities for one last time

The creator also promised for exciting in game fun activities are planned to be rolled out soon, so that the loyal players can get the most out of the game in the little time remaining.

What does it mean for the mobile versions of Farmville

The game’s mobile version is not going to be affected anyway and would be available on all Android and iOS devices. The developers are also planning for the launch of the third edition of the game, Farmville 3 on mobile devices.

We hope that the in-game experiences we’ve developed over the years have provided you with the highest level of entertainment that we strive to fulfill here at Zynga. We look forward to you joining us in Farmville 2: Tropic Escape and the upcoming worldwide launch of FarmVille 3 on mobile.

It is pretty evident that now Zynga will completely focus on the mobile versions of the game since more players are hooked to the mobile platform than Facebook. So somehow the decision of shutting down of Farmville is fine. With the upcoming launch of Farmville 3, we are hoping that the gap of Farmville will surely be filled.
