FarmVille 2 reaches new heights among fastest-growing Facebook games by DAU

Zynga’s FarmVille 2 is continuing to thrive on Facebook, having reached a new daily active user record. The game’s currently holding the top spot with 9.1 million DAU, up by five percent and 400,000 DAU over the past week.

King.com’s Candy Crush Saga took the No. 2 spot with 300,000 DAU, a six percent gain. Peak Games’ Lost Bubble came in at No. 3 with 200,000 DAU, up 17 percent. Social Point’s Dragon City took No. 4, also up 200,000 DAU but for a seven percent increase this time. Finally, Bubble Witch Saga was the third game to snag 200,000 DAU, grabbing the No. 5 spot with a five percent gain.

Percentage-wise, gains were small this week. There were only three titles with increases greater than 30 percent. EA’s JetSet Secrets took in 190,000 DAU for a 380 percent gain. Family Farm (which was revealed to be a clone of Country Life back in April) is showing up on our list again with 100,000 DAU for a 38 percent increase. Playforia’s Bubbles IQ took in 70,000 DAU for a 39 percent gain.
