Zynga rose to fame around 6 years ago and went public back in 2011. The company has an estimated 1 billion users who have played it’s games however in recent years the company has been struggling to maintain interest.

“These new mobile games are for you, by you,” continued Downie, “and deliver the fresh unique features and gameplay you’ve been asking for.”
Zynga are yet to issue launch dates for the new updated games however the company has announced that the new update for Words with Friends will be available in the coming weeks.
“We cannot wait to hear what you think of the games when they become available worldwide. On behalf of all the teams hard work creating, designing, engineering, and investing at Zynga, thank you for playing,” concluded Downie.
