"Restructuring" is never a good word, especially if you're an employee at a company who will be doing the said restructuring. Zynga, the company responsible for bringing you the Facebook classic, Farmville, and the equally as impressive and game-changing, Farmville 2, is laying off 520 of its employees (which is about 18-percent of its workforce), and closing offices in Los Angeles, New York and Dallasâ€”with everything to be completed by August.
"I think we all know this is necessary to move forward," said Zynga CEO and Founder Mark Pincus in a memo. With these cuts, Zynga will be saving upwards to $80 million in costs. Farmville 2 actually has more than 40 million monthly users, but active users were down by 13% from last year.
Was this something Farmville 3 couldn't fix?
