OMGPOP Shut Down By Zynga One Year After Acquisition – Austin Visuals 3D Animation Studio Reports

In March of 2012, Zynga had bought out OMGPOP, the creators of the popular gaming app Draw Something, for over $200M. However, most of OMGPOP’s staff had recently been laid off, and their New York office shut down.



Zynga and OMGPOP had struggled with each other since the merger, with OMGPOP CEO Dan Porter leaving the company about two months ago after a statement he had made was taken out of context to suggest that Zynga openly copies games from competing companies. It is not yet known what Zynga plans to do with OMGPOP’s online gaming portal, or whether they will even continue to use the brand name at all.
