Petville put to sleep by Zynga

Written by Nick Farrell



13 game titles shuttered


Social games publisher Zynga Inc has carried out its mayan apocalypse on 11 of the planned shutdowns of 13 game titles, with the formally popular "Petville" one of those closed.

Zynga had announced in October said it would cull 13 underperforming titles after warning that its revenues were slowing as gamers fled from its once-popular titles published on the Facebook platform in large numbers. The "Petville" shutdown was announced two weeks ago on its Facebook page. All the 11 shutdowns occurred in December. Also gone are "Mafia Wars 2," "Vampire Wars," "ForestVille" and "FishVille."

"In place of 'PetVille,' we encourage you to play other Zynga games like 'Castleville,' 'Chefville,' 'Farmville 2,' 'Mafia Wars' and 'Yoville,'" the company told players on its 'PetVille' Facebook page. "PetVille" players were offered a one-time, complimentary bonus package for virtual goods in those games.

Only 1,260 users were upset about the closer of PetVille and commented on the game's Facebook page, some lamenting the game's shutdown. The rest of the world carried on as normal.
