There's been a lot of conflicting and potentially scary information floating around today on the fate of Flash and what could happen to Farmville. Your Dirt Farmer team is here to debunk the misinformation and let you know that there is nothing to worry about. The upcoming changes to flash are not going to impact our beloved Farmville or other games you play. Check out the details below and please do share.
First of all Flash is not going away. In January it will be renamed to Animate, but will retain the same functionality.
Secondly, while it is true that Adobe is encouraging new development to switch to html5.
ADOBE THEMSELVES STATED THAT
Flash continues to be used in key categories like web gaming and premium video, where new standards have yet to fully mature. Moving forward, Adobe is committed to working with industry partners, as we have with Microsoft and Google, to help ensure the ongoing compatibility and security of Flash content. In that spirit, today we are announcing that we are working together with Facebook to help ensure Flash gaming content on Facebook continues to run reliably and securely. As part of this cooperation, Facebook will report security information that helps Adobe improve the Flash Player.
They are well aware of the numerous flash games out there and intend to continue supporting flash aka Animate and our Facebook and other games are safe. There is nothing to worry about.
