Zynga Co-Founder Leaving the Company
Justin Waldron is venturing out on his own again.
Despite hiring former President of the Interactive Entertainment Business Don Mattrick, social games developer Zynga is still facing a free-fall with several senior executives leaving the company and the company floundering with its social games. Now, even Zynga co-founder Justin Waldron has departed from the company, announcing the same over Facebook.
“I’ve decided it’s time to leave Zynga and venture off on my own again. It’s been 6 and a half years since we pushed the button to launch our first game, and each moment since has been magic.
“It’s incredibly humbling to have worked with such a talented team. I am grateful to have had the chance to help build a company that touched so many people. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of it- both in the trenches and for playing the games.”
Where does Zynga go from here? The saga of its downfall continues. Stay tuned for more.
