Zynga reduces losses.
Zynga’s financial condition isn’t that good and they have taken measure to reduce losses by closing two games at the company, namely: Fishville and Treasure Isle. It seems that these games weren’t bringing in enough revenue for them.
They had cancelled The Ville as well earlier when they fired 200 people from their Boston studio. Here’s the mail they send to the people playing the game. These games will be closed on December 5 as the statement below mentions.
Thank you for supporting FishVille and for being a loyal player! We’re sorry to inform you that FishVille will be shutting down on December 5, 2012. In place of FishVille, we encourage you to play other Zynga games like Castleville, Chefville, Farmville 2, Mafia Wars and Yoville.
