zoo tycoon friends

For a few hours today, Microsoft released Zoo Tycoon Friends for both Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 in the US. However, the company has just sent over a statement informing us that the game isn't quite ready for a full launch:.

Here's what Microsoft spokesperson told us:

"Zoo Tycoon Friends was briefly made available in the marketplace for Windows Phone customers to download and play for a short period while testing. The game is available in select markets only as it completes certification. We look forward to bringing Zoo Tycoon Friends to Windows 8.1 phones, tablets and PCs very soon."

So if you were lucky enough to download the game during that time period, enjoy this apparently early look at the latest game in the zoo simulation series. The rest of us will have to wait a little while longer before Zoo Tycoon Friends is completed.
