With the end of support for both Flash Player and Java platforms, comes the end of life for many once-popular games. Java support has been discontinued on most browsers and Adobe is ending Flash Player support on December 31, 2020.

Games are shifting to other platforms like HTML 5. Unfortunately, shifting games to another platform isn’t as simple as just copying and moving the game. Games have to be completely rebuilt and reprogrammed.

The company apologized saying, “We know some of you will be disappointed. Due to changes in supported technology, it is simply not feasible for us to continue supporting these games. We know it’s no fun to lose a favorite game, so we encourage you to explore the Pogo library. We have multiple games in each category – bingo, card, word, puzzle, etc. – offering similar gameplay.”

They also said they will continue to update their most popular games to HTML5 and have released 24 new titles and more are on the way.
