I forgot all about this game, but I’m all of a sudden sad to hear this news and I don’t even know why!

Remember Farmville? The once-popular Facebook game is shutting down for good at the end of the month.

Farmville launched in 2009 and quickly became a phenomenon, with tens of millions of players tending their virtual farms and harassing their Facebook friends with help requests. I rarely ever played but I certainly remember how annoyed I was with this!

On Monday, parent company Zynga announced that Farmville would shut down permanently on Dec. 31st, 2020. However, if you still play and you’re sad to hear about this news, don’t worry, it’s launching as a mobile app soon!

R.I.P. to Farmville as we know it!
