Just as we close out the year of 2012, Zynga is announcing that its shutting down 11 of its titles that haven’t lived up to the company’s expectations in social gaming. Although most of these titles aren’t very popular, a few of these games have received a bit of traction within the social gaming community, specifically Mafia Wars 2, and Petville (the latter had more than one million users at its peak.)
We’ve seen Zynga struggle a bit throughout the year of 2012, and these changes (which the company’s CEO said was all “standard restructuring”) may indicate that company will have future problems in 2013. While Zynga made some bold acquisitions last year, including Draw Something and Words With Friends, it has also been plagued by financial issues.
Zynga will have to step up its game in the new year if it expects to stay at the top in the world of social gaming.
