Zynga is currently focusing on developing exciting games for the mobile devices, and in order to do that properly it already sacked almost 1/5th of its staff. The company is mainly cutting down the expenses as much as possible to fight this unfavorable condition.
The social gaming firm is currently giving its full priority on making such games that can be played on tablets, consoles or smartphones. The company has been shutting down a few unpopular games to provide extra monetary support to its overall transition plan.
Zynga Inc. has also its own online gaming arena, which can be accessed at zynga.com. The company is also redesigning it in order to make it even more appealing and exciting for the interested end users.
The main reason of Zynga’s fame was its alliance with the social networking giant Facebook. Eventually the users of this social media played loads of Zynga games with their friends, which helped the company to rise up in the ladder of stardom. But last year these two firms have grown apart in order to walk alone. In the mean time Zynga seeks new consumers while Facebook develops several other revenue streams.
