Zynga shuttering OMGPOP games, web site


Four Facebook games developed by Zynga's (ZNGA) OMGPOP unit (acquired last year for $180M+) will be shut down by month's end, and the OMGPop.com site will be shuttered on Sep. 30.

All of the games had less than 50K monthly active users, per AppData.

OMGPOP's Draw Something games will continue to be supported.

The game closings come after Zynga's OMGPOP studio became a casualty of the company's June layoffs.

TechCrunch reports "multiple OMGPOP team members" tried to buy the site and other OMGPOP assets, but were rebuffed. Zynga reportedly claimed "this would all take too much legal work."

As its Q2 stats indicate, Zynga has lost considerable Facebook gaming share over the last year.
