Popular Facebook farming game ‘Farmville’ is shutting down permanently

In 2009, every social media user and their family members were hooked to a game that did not require a gaming console.  All you needed was a web browser and an Internet account to play the farming simulator game. 11 years later, however, the game is now being officially shut down on 31st December 2020.

The farming simulation-online game was popular amongst all ages as players would plant, harvest, raise livestock and co-operate with other farmers to keep the farm in good condition. The game was highly addictive and amassed millions of players in a very short time. However, 11 years later, everything is coming to an end. 

Zynga, the company behind the popular game said in a statement “Following an incredible 11 years since its initial launch back in 2009, we are officially announcing the closure of the original FarmVille game on Facebook. As previously stated, Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player for all web browsers, and Facebook will stop supporting Flash games on the platform completely after December 31st, 2020.”
