In this day and age, a lot of people like to play games in convenient places. Whether that be on your video gaming console that you own, playing mobile games on your smartphone devices, or playing flash games on your desktop computer, everyone has a preferred place to play their games. Even if you are not a big fan of video games, you probably still own or have played some sort of game in your life. Every person in the US has played a flash game on their computers at least once so when the news came out that Adobe was putting a stop to flash games, people had some negative opinions.
Kids grew up playing games on different flash game sites and when a rumor was started that Adobe was shutting down all of the sites that kids still play on to this day, everyone panicked. A petition was started and it ended up reaching half of it’s goal within a few days to keep these sites open. No one knows how started the rumors that this popular site was going to be shut down but it was obvious that people did not want it to come to that.
Adobe announced they were shutting down their flash players in February of 2020, this is the news that sparked all of the rumors. While Adobe did say they are planning on discontinuing flash players, they aren’t shutting down the flash online games that you know and love. Instead, they are putting out a brand new software called Animation CC.
They wanted to create a new name for it so that it would not get confused with old and outdated software. Flash related things are becoming a lot less relevant as technology enhances so to keep up with it, Adobe is launching a new updated software with a different name.
But you can rest assured that your flash online games shouldn’t be going anywhere. They will just have a new software to run them and better graphic to play with. So really, this decision is a good one and you should be excited for it.
