Late last week, Zynga launched CityVille, its latest flagship title. Now, Zynga reports that in the game's first 24 hours, over 290,000 people played CityVille. That's more than double the 116,000 that Zynga's last title, FrontierVille, saw in its first 24 hours: 6.5 million players a day, with 29,872,423 monthly active users.

Zynga says that these 290,000 initial installs were primarily "organic" -- they mostly came from players sharing status updates and inviting their friends. Zynga says that it hasn't yet activated the cross-game marketing that'll eventually roll out to its other popular games like FarmVille and FrontierVille.

  • 5 million sections of road have been laid down
  • 25% of players have set up franchises in friend's game boards
