King.com surpasses EA with 10 million daily Facebook users

Wednesday, 18th April 2012 21:24 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

European start-up King.com has close to 10 million people playing its Facebook games daily, leading it to surpass the number of users who play EA titles on the social site. The firm’s most popular title, Bubble Witch Saga, currently has more players than Zynga’s Farmville. Another Facebook game from the firm, Candy Crush Saga, has launched last week and already claims half a million daily users. Still, it has a ways to go before catching up with the juggernaut that is Zynga and its 80 games with 65 million daily users. That being said, King.com hopes to “reach Zynga” levels with its popularity and is eyeing a possible IPO next year. Via Reuters.

    Smile people! This is the level of intelligence of your average facebook user.

    edit: Well, not as low as the level of intelligence of your average Xbox user but pretty low nonetheless.

    No surprise for me that King got so high! Candy Crush brought me a single step beyond madness!

    Fortunately i found Crushing Candies a few moments before i go crazy!

    I think that King Com will go much higher as the time goes and launches new succesful games as Pet Rescue Personally I find it really enjoyable.

    Since Candy Crush went on facebook, it doesnt come as a surprise. It’s all healthy competition, unless EA flex their wallet and buy out King.com, sack all the talent and release Candy Crush 2, now with Haribo Bears!

    Importantly, how King.com games interactive with facebook users, doesnt piss them off. Farmville has a woeful UI, especially when it comes to interacting with friends on facebook. Spend 20 years accepting gifts – just urgh
