Staggering growth of CityVille

It seems only weeks ago that we were telling you about the launch of CityVille, the new game on Facebook developed by Zynga who created the phenomenally successful FarmVille game, and only a few days ago we reported on CityVille vs. FarmVille and asked which was better.

Now more staggering statistics have been revealed by Robin Wauters over on TechCrunch who informs us that the application page for CityVille on Facebook now registers 84 million active users. That’s a huge amount more than mentioned in our previous article only a few days ago when there were 72 million monthly active users.

Indeed the report tells us that CityVille gained 2 million new players in just one day and nearly 22 million over the last week. Apparently Inside Social Games forecasts there will be 125 million monthly active users on CityVille in the future shattering all statistics for any game every played on the Facebook platform. TechCrunch points out that CityVille could become the first app/game to get past the 100 million monthly active users milestone and could do so within the next 2 weeks which is mindblowing stuff.

If all the fuss has so far escaped you then head to this link to play the game using your Facebook account. Are you already an avid CityVille player and if so what makes the game so enjoyable and even better than FarmVille in your opinion? We’d like to hear your comments so please do send them in.

    This is a new record for social online games.
    I bet after this there will be more copycat following the social online games apps.
    Let's see what the future holds for.
