FarmVille transitioning from Beta to Subscription?
UPDATE: Zynga has confirmed this rumor is NOT true. Please read here for an update.
Rumor, Rumor, Rumor . . .
There is a rumor (un-confirmed) circulating that FarmVille will finally be moving out of Beta and transitioning to a monthly subscription service, where you will be required to pay a fee to play. Please remember, that this is a rumor and FarmVille Freak cannot confirm it as true.
I received the following email from FarmVille Freak Ben,
“ ATTENTION: Zynga has announced that as of March 31, 2010 FarmVille will no longer be available in it’s Beta version. The game will be available for a subscription fee of $5.99 per month and will include additional levels above 70. …… “.
Since FarmVille has been in Beta for months (since June) it is possible that anything can happen including it eventually becoming a video console or computer based game and even a required subscription service is plausible. However, I don’t think that is the case presently, this rumor is just a rumor. To my knowledge, Zynga has not made an official statement (as of tonight) mentioning this big move. So please don’t freak out yet
If you see this rumor posted in Facebook’s newsfeed, please do not contribute to its viral spread by posting it in yours.
