Zynga closes, consolidates several US offices

Zynga has closed its Baltimore studio and shuffled staff around in New York and Texas, resulting in “minimal” job cuts.

“We are closing the McKinney, Texas and downtown Austin offices and relocating those teams near-by to our existing Dallas and North Austin offices. And we will be consolidating our NYC offices to move staff to our NYC mobile studio,” the social publisher revealed in a blog post.

More severely, the company is also closing its Baltimore office entirely, but Zynga said the impact would be “minimal” as it had been able to find new roles for all affected staff who requested a transfer.

“These changes will further enable us to focus our resources on our most strategic opportunities. We’re already working to execute on leveraging franchises to build the largest game network and be profitable on an adjusted EBITDA basis. We still have a lot of work to do, but I’m confident that we’re on the right path to deliver on the potential of Zynga,” COO David Ko said.
