Zynga Shuts Down Petville, Mafia Wars 2, Ten Other Games

After laying off 100 employees in October, the company announced that they were “sunsetting” 13 older games from their library and reducing investment in “The Ville”. That has come to fruition this month, culminating in yesterday’s surprising shut down of the popular PetVille and Mafia Wars 2. (Android, Casual games, Industry, iPad, iPhone, Mafia Wars 2, Mafia Wars Shakedown, Mobile, PetVille, Zynga)
