Zynga Still Alive and Kicking with CityVille 2

By   /   4 years ago


Nearly two years ago, Zynga released CityVille on Facebook. The difference between two years ago and now for both CityVille and the developer is subtle and stark, respectively.

While not much is known about CityVille 2 yet — including its release date, though it’s assumed a December launch — a screenshot shows at least a few minor aesthetic changes, including day-and-night dynamic not seen in the original.

The average Facebook user who plays Zynga’s games might not know it by the top three Facebook titles all being Zynga’s, but the developer is in murky waters. Its stock price is down 75 percent from its opening IPO price, and reputable publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Forbes have already counted the publisher out.

Regardless, Zynga is still alive and kicking, and as long as people continue to care about games like CityVille 2, then Zynga may just continue to do alright.
