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.
