To our players:
We want to share some news regarding a few of our longest standing games.
Based on the natural evolution of our game storylines and changing consumer preferences, we have made the tough but important decision to close 11 of our older Web and mobile games, some of which have been in market for more than 4 years. The games impacted are Ayakashi: Ghost Guild, Bubble Safari Mobile, Bubble Safari Ocean, CastleVille, ChefVille, Duck Dynasty Slots, Pioneer Trail, Puzzle Charms, Skateboard Slam, Riches of Olympus Slots and Zynga Slots. All games will be ending by April 30th. Games have begun rolling out closure information via in-game messages and include a thank you to players.
As a team we do not take the decision to close our games lightly but we have made this decision in order to pave the way for our game teams to put their passion, energy and creativity into developing new, world-class games for you. We greatly appreciate your support of these games over the years.
We are proud of the connections and relationships these games have fostered for our players and we are looking forward to sharing the new experiences our teams are creating. With mobile games like FarmVille: Harvest Swap, Empires & Allies and Dawn of Titans all slated to launch later this year, we are excited to usher in a new era of Zynga and NaturalMotion games that we hope you will enjoy.
Thank you again for playing and sharing some of your time with us. We look forward to seeing you in our new Zynga and NaturalMotion games soon.
