OMGPOP was considered Zynga New York when it was acquired by Zynga for $183 million in March, 2012. Several OMGPOP employees, such as community manager Joseph Alminawi and VP of outreach Ali Nicolas, today tweeted about the studio's closure and the resulting layoffs. The official OMGPOP twitter account also stated: "While this is the last day at @zynga for many @omgpop staff, we want to thank you for all love and awesomeness over the years!"
The layoffs across the three Zynga locations affects 520 employees. According to an earlier report, Zynga LA-developed Empires & Allies is scheduled to shut down June 17.
Polygon contacted Zynga about the closure of OMGPOP and will update this post with more information.
