Zynga recently announced the successor to their hit game CityVille; the CityVille 2 which is currently in closed beta test.
The game publisher did not provide much information about the game except that “CityVille 2 delivers a truly social and visually rich city building experience. It has all the features in CityVille that players love – from neighbor visits and crews to buildables – blended with some of the innovations we introduced in CastleVille and FarmVille 2 such a crafting and 3D graphics.”
What is surprising about this announcement is that TechCrunch is reporting that the closed beta test version of CityVille 2 is currently — or should I say only — available to Facebook users in the Philippines. The report did not say why it’s geo locked in the Philippines and the 1 reason for this is that there are a lot of gamers located in the Philippines and are actively providing feedback, which is very important during beta test phase.
No word yet as to when CityVille 2 will officially launch.
