Zynga is reportedly planning to announce a major restructuring at the corporate level, as sources tell AllThingsD that three of Zynga’s C-level executives are leaving the company. Zynga’s COO David Ko, Chief People Officer Colleen McCreary and Chief Technology Officer Cadier Lee will step down from their positions.
This is a major change, coming just weeks after Don Mattrick stepped in as CEO, replacing founder Mark Pincus, who remains at the company as Chief Product Officer.
In Zynga’s Q2 2013 earnings report, Mattrick confirmed he would conduct a “top to bottom business review” to improve Zynga’s overall product quality. Since then, Zynga has announced the complete closure of OMGPop.com, four of OMGPop’s Facebook games, and the closure of Zynga Slingo on Facebook.
On a positive note, the developer has also released a new match-three Facebook game, Fairy Tale Twist, which looks to capitalize on the growing popularity and success of other match-three titles, including King’s Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga.
Zynga’s Facebook games currently have over 131 million cumulative players, according to our app tracking service AppData. That number has been on a steady decline since October 2012, when Zynga’s games claimed over 340 million players.
