Zynga has laid off 5 percent of its workforce and shut down its Boston offices in an attempt to make the company profitable again. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the only cuts that are on the table. There are currently rumors that the social gaming giant will cut its Japanese and British offices as well. Zynga has been in trouble recently having to lower their quarterly expectations two times already.

The company is planning on closing out 13 older titles to help cut costs and they plan on scaling back “The Ville” which would have been their largest game.
