In the statement they released, it said Facebook will complete stop supporting Flash games on the platform after December 31, 2020.

"FarmVille will therefore be directly affected as a result of this," it read.

They thanked their supporters and players who have been with them since the beginning.

"We’re aware that many of you have been with us since the very beginning, helping to build an incredible global community of players over the years who’ve enjoyed this game just as much as we have. For that we say thank you."

FarmVille said "in-app purchases will be available up until November 17, at which point the game’s payment system will be completely turned off."

After the said period, FarmVille will not be accepting in-app payments and refunds.

"FarmVille will, however, continue to be playable until December 31st, 2020, at which point it will be shut down completely," the announcement continued.

FarmVille reminded players to use any remaining credits before December 31.

"We are also working on fun in-game activities to be announced soon that are designed to make your remaining time with FarmVille even more enjoyable," the statement read.

Despite its closure on Facebook, the game will develop new ones on mobile.

"We look forward to you joining us in Farmville 2: Tropic Escape and the upcoming worldwide launch of FarmVille 3 on mobile," it added. — Jannielyn Ann Bigtas/LA, GMA News
