Candy Crush Saga developer King has closed five games in an effort to pool its focus on the studio’s biggest titles. reports that the five closed games are Bubble Saga, Hoop de Loop Saga, Puzzle Saga, Miner Speed and King Gold Games.

A company rep told the site, “In order to invest resources behind its most popular games and its forthcoming launches, King has decided to close some of its smaller titles next month. The games affected typically have fewer players and, in some cases, were earlier iterations of the hugely successful Saga model that King has developed over the past two years.”

The site flagged up rumours that King is looking to streamline its operations in preparation of going public, but nothing official has been said on the matter.
