Brian Reynolds considering forming a new studio now that he's exited Zynga

Brian Reynolds, a chief game designer at Zyna East who announced his departure this week, has said on VentureBeat today he is considering starting his own development firm.

According to Reynolds, he wants to "experiment more than might be appropriate for a publicly traded company, and I might want to do something that would be 'off strategy' for Zynga or otherwise too risky."

Reynolds said a smaller firm would also allow him to write codes for his games, and tablet and mobile games may be a good place to start for him.

Before joining Zynga, Reynolds founded Big Huge Games, and co-founded Firaxis Games with Sid Meier.
