One of Facebook‘s most popular games is coming to its competitor Google+. Back in July, Zynga announced they were bringing Zynga Poker, as well as other games to the social network. At the time, no one knew if that meant their two most popular games – CityVille and FarmVille.
The company announced today, via their blog, the addition of CityVille+ to the new Google+ game platform. The game allows players to build a thriving metropolis and has people hooked!
They said, “CityVille grew to become our largest game on Facebook, so naturally we wanted to “build” a presence for it on Google+. Ultimately, we want to make our games accessible to everyone, everywhere – no matter where they play or what platform they play on.”
Out of Zynga’s 146 million users of its social games, most of them are from Facebook. It was back in July of 2010 that Google invested (quietly) $100 million in Zynga, so most knew seeing their games arrive on Google+ was only a matter of time.
Google+ currently has 18 games including Angry Birds, Crime City, Bejeweled Blitz, Zynga Poker and now CityVille. Is Farmville next? That’s what Google+ game players want to know!
I’m glad to hear this news, I always wanted to see CityVille on Google+
I know there are some awesome games across the Facebook world. But i don’t know, maybe i’m not too active in Facebook anymore, so i never had a chance to try any game on Facebook ever, let alone on Google +. 😀 But Zynge does make some pretty awesome games on smartphones and tablets and some of them are popular actually. So if Google can improve the UI of Google + to be much simpler but elegant, then maybe i will be interested to play games on it in the future.
