If you've been a Facebook user since the 2010s, you must already know what FarmVille is
The super popular game was made available on Facebook in the year 2009 and it had people staying up late and waking up early just to harvest plants and feed animals on a virtual farm.
Zynga - the game's developer and publisher - just announced that the original FarmVille will cease to exist after 31 December
To be honest, we didn't even know that the game was still around.
According to a statement issued by Zynga, the reason behind the closure is that Adobe will stop distributing and updating Flash Player for all web browsers, and Facebook will stop supporting Flash games on the platform completely after 31 December.
Therefore, FarmVille will be directly affected as a result of this.
However, until then, the game is still playable on Facebook and if you're just itching to continue playing virtual farming games, you can check out FarmVille 2: Tropic Escape and FarmVille 2: Country Escape that are available on the Zynga website.
Meanwhile, FarmVille 3 will be launched on mobile soon.
Although some of us probably haven't played the game in years, many netizens are mourning the end of an era
One person wrote, "Just learnt FarmVille is shutting down. Good old times when I was playing it. Thank you for the memories."
"Apparently they're getting rid of FarmVille. There goes my childhood. [I swear to god]," said another netizen.
A Twitter user commented, "FarmVille is closing? What the f**k 2020 this is too much."
Goodbye, FarmVille. We will miss you and your seasonal crops.
