Mafia Wars 2 to shutter at year’s end
Zynga has announced the closure of Mafia Wars 21 on December 30. A follow-up to one of the social publisher’s earliest major successes, the Facebook title has failed to capture long lasting interest from punters, and is the latest victim of Zynga’s belt-tightening as it struggles to transition away from social gaming’s apparent decline. Games.com reports players have been offered a bonus package in CastleVille, ChefVille, FarmVille 2, Mafia Wars or YoVille to compensate them for the loss of invested time.
