Zynga Japan Will Close In January

Zynga Japan came from Zynga's acquisition of Unoh Games in 2010. Zynga's goal was to establish their own presence in a market where social and mobile games were already quite popular. Unfortunately, Zynga could not compete with other prominent developers in the region, and the company opted to close its Japan office as part of its effort to reduce the company by 5 percent.
