Zynga Game Closure Post April 30th


If you thought the games not announced to be closed on April 30th were safe, you were wrong. Zynga announced that KRE-O CityVille Invasion will close on May 15th. Looking at the list of All Games on the Player Support site, 14 of them will be gone. Zynga announced that 11 games would be closed by the end of April [1].  They included Bubble Safari Mobile which is not listed on the Player Support site and omitted a few in their announcement [1].  The total number of games to be closed by May 15th is now at 15. The biggest mistake Zynga is making with these closures is not reassuring players of their other games. Many who play Mafia Wars firmly believe that it will shutdown soon. This could be costing Zynga money in the bank. All they need to do is make a few announcements that Mafia Wars will be here a while longer but perhaps they don’t know this for sure.



  1. probably more games closing sooner then later , interesting read saw this link on the feed just below this blog post!!
    its all about mobile from here on for zynga , no wonder the game isn't getting fixed all the cash they get from vip and players that inject accounts are going to new mobile games and not back into mafia wars.
    pretty much can say that all of the games are going to be closed soon if mobile gamesd is what they are going for !!!

  2. A very strange and stunning development. Why would they shut down the game two weeks after the API change deadline? I just checked and can find nothing anywhere about a deadline extension. Weird.

    But yeah, clearly this means Mafia Wars is not as safe as we thought it was. I can't help but feel there is a reason we have received no assurances.

  3. Closure season is not over.

  4. Have you seen this announcement?
