Zynga hints at CityVille expansion with ... Edgar hanging on a chopper?

CityVille Edgar
Is CityVille headed for the beach? A screen shot that several players of Zynga's city-builder are posting on the forums suggests at least something close to that. CityVille fans first noticed Edgar, the resident millionaire in CityVille--well, besides you--hanging onto a helicopter Diehard-style, looking through a pair of binoculars a few days ago. Now, the original thread has ballooned to a 24-page long speculation fest, and rightfully so.

Judging from the looks of the screen shot, Edgar is looking toward an area we've yet to be able to expand to: across the river. More specifically, players like Provinica, who posted the original image, seem to believe that we're headed to the beach area across the river. If you look closely at the image, you'll see a blue sign at the roads dead end that signifies the ocean.

If that's the case, then this likely wouldn't be a full-blown expansion akin to FarmVille English Countryside or FrontierVille's Oregon Trail. Rather, it would simply be a larger content update than usual, probably opening some sort of bridge over the river. It all appears to add up, but anything said of the upcoming feature is pure speculation at this point.

What do you think this hint means for the future of CityVille? How big do you expect this new feature or update to be? Speculate away in the comments. Add Comment.
