Don't CastleVille and FrontierVille ,Pioneer Trail--already take place in forests? Zynga has registered numerous domain names for "ForestVille". The social games giant has registered everything from "Forestville.com" onwards (the real deal belongs to a school district), to "Forestvillegame.com".

Zynga recently launched Castleville, but now the social gaming giant appears to have plans to launch a new game called Forestville.
All of the names were registered through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor that Zynga regularly uses to acquire domain names.
Interestingly enough, Zynga doesn't own the prime internet real estate: Forestville.com. The domain is currently home to the Forestville Central School District website out of New York. But that hasn't stopped
Zynga from registering typos of Forestville.com like wwwforestville.com (minus a ' ') or forestvile.com (minus an ‘l’).
Zynga did manage to get several country domains like Forestville.de, Forestville.jp and Forestville.co.uk. A message on the home page of Forestville.de reads, "This domain is registered and protected by MarkMonitor".
Right is a list of many of the names registered earlier this week.
Zynga has not made any announcement about the game. So Forestville becoming a full-fledged game is just speculation until more news emerges from Zynga.
