Developer Zynga says that its popular Facebook game FarmVille has over 32 million daily users and more than 80 million total. Now reports say that the next step in expanding that massive user base is bringing the farming game to other gaming platforms.

"Zynga plans to expand to various mobile platforms," a Zynga spokesperson told social media site Mashable.com. The spokesperson did not offer any further details.

Speculation about new versions of FarmVille originated on sleuthing blog Superannuation. The site noticed that the domain names farmvilleandroid.com, farmvilleipad.com, farmvilleiphone.com and farmvillesms.com were all registered this month by DNStination, the same registrant that holds the official www.farmville.com page.

FarmVille is a free-to-play game in which players take care of crops and animals on a virtual farm. The game, which generates revenue through virtual item buys, debuted in June 2009.

Privately-owned San Francisco-based Zynga is also the developer behind the popular social game Mafia Wars.
