It appears that Zynga has removed its hit game FarmVille from MSN Games, one of the bigger game portals around! This move is sure to disappoint many MSN Games users who enjoyed playing FarmVille! Zynga first added FarmVille to MSN in February, hoping to move beyond Facebook.
This is not the first time that Zynga has pulled a game from a platform. The company did the same with the social network Tagged, canceling a much-discussed partnership.
MSN claims that it has about half a billion monthly users worldwide, between Games and Messenger, which is approximately the same as what Facebook claims.
But it looks like Zynga didn’t find the MSN traffic good enough to continue running FarmVille on the Microsoft platform.
Since MSN is traditionally one of the biggest gaming sites on the web, Zynga’s departure suggests the traffic other social developers are hoping to find off of Facebook may be more difficult to find than expected, reports InsideSocialGames.
