Zynga Shutting Down Games “To Better Position Ourselves for Long-Term”
COO Dan Ko talks about having the best leaders in the right teams.
In an interview with VentureBeat, Zynga COO Dan Ko spoke about retiring games and stated that it’s about putting talent in the right places for the sake of long-term thinking.
“It’s around making sure that we have our best resources and our best leaders on the right teams so that, in essence, we can have the best shot on goal. We’re not saying it’s always going to go in the net, but we are saying that we want to increase our odds and always make sure we have the best shot on goal.
“What we’re recognizing is that to do that, you have to make some of these tough calls. While it’s always hard to shut down games that are in progress or games that are live, those calls are made so we can better position ourselves to win in the long term. We’re not playing for the short term right now.”
