Hidden Chronicles tops this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by MAU

Zynga’s Hidden Chronicles arrives at the top of this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by monthly active users a little over a week after launching.

Though we can assume Zynga is leveraging its massive cross-promotion platform to guide users to its newest game, Hidden Chronicles appears to be growing at a much more modest rate than Zynga games released in mid to late 2011. This could be due to the genre of the game, or it could be that Zynga is exercising more caution in flooding new games with users. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see if Hidden Chronicles can break through the one month wall where most of Zynga’s newer games have stopped growing.
