Game Over for Zynga Japan: Tokyo Office to Close January 31


Zynga Japan will be closing down its Tokyo office at the end of January, according to notices posted on its website. We had a foreshadowing that this would happen back in October when Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) laid off five percent of its workforce and proposed the closure of Japan and UK studios as well.

Serkan Toto has posted an informative timeline of Zynga Japan’s short-lived history over on his blog, and I encourage you to check that out. Then when you’re good and depressed, go cheer yourself up with a game of Rage of Bahamut.
