One of Zynga’s cofounders, Justin Waldron, announced this week that he would be departing the company after more than six years.
In a post on Facebook, Waldron praised the company and its employees, but noted that “it’s time to leave Zynga and venture off on my own again.” Waldron did not offer any details as to where he may go next, though he recently highlighted the fact that he has been investing in startups.
Several prominent people have left or been pushed out of Zynga in the past year or so as it struggles to regain its footing in the gaming market.
Even Mark Pincus, the best known of Zynga’s founders, stepped down from his role as CEO to make way for Don Mattrick, a former Xbox executive, to take charge of directing the company.
