2021 is in, Flash moves out and so does FarmVille

We all have just witness an end to one of the most terrifying and dreadful year over many decades for now. While people are hoping for some good with the beginning of a fresh year, the nightmare still continues for millions of gamers worldwide. It is now official that we all have to leave Adobe Flash and FarmVille behind forever.

Flash was expected to see an end a long time ago. The techno giant company Apple has never preferred Flash for its iPhone devices. Even at one instance just over 10 years back, Apple’s then-CEO Steve Jobs published a letter highlighting the inadequacy of technology.

Obviously, Adobe was of the plans to revoke Flash, and announced in 2017 about phasing out Flash by the end of 2020. In the intervening time most web browsers have before now stopped supporting Flash, and now we have finally touched down the official end date.

Relating to this, Zynga too announced of late that the end of Flash at the same time will bring to an end of FarmVille, given that the game heavy backs on the Flash plugin.

Introduced back in the year 2009, FarmVille’s popularity lined the way for the heritage of Zynga and of Facebook gaming, but both Zynga and gaming have moved on to a greater extent.

The company’s co-founder and former CEO Mark Pincus memorialized the juncture with a series of tweets delineating the growing phases subject to this popular game.

“FarmVille demonstrated that a game could be a living, always-on service that could deliver daily surprise and delight, similar to a favorite TV series,” Pincus wrote. “Games could also connect groups of people and bring them closer together.”

And to put an end to worries of FarmVille fans, though it is the final day for the original game, the players can still enjoy playing FarmVille 2: Tropic Escape, FarmVille 2: Country Escape. Further to their surprise FarmVille 3 is converging shortly to mobile.
