While the mobile games business in China is booming, and looks set to continue as more people gets access to smartphones, Zynga reportedly has closed down its Beijing office. The office opened in the May of 2010, following the purchase of a local company known as XPD Media. Do note that the closure has yet to be officially announced by Zynga, only “leaked” by some employees.
Zynga China did had some successes, launching “Draw Something” on Sina Weibo, working with Tencent to launch CityVille, and more. The overseas offices were all unstable once the main headquarters in North America began serious restructuring, including the closure of the Japan office back in 2013. Since 2012, I estimate Zynga had laid off around 800 employees worldwide.
