Another financial quarter’s results have been posted, and Zynga continues to see a decline in active players. Daily active users dropped 21 percent to 19 million. Monthly active users, in fact, dropped by 27 percent to 75 million.
The good news for Zynga in all of this, however, is that profits are up compared to the same period last year. They posted a $4 million profit for the quarter ending Sept. 30, while last year saw an $8 million loss. Revenue is the same year-on-year, so this profit comes from less spending on Zynga’s part.
Mixed in the news is the departure of Chief Financial Officer David Lee. He’s done effective immediately, though he will not officially leave the company until December 11.
Replacing Lee is Chief Accounting Officer Michelle Quejado. She’s an interim replacement as Zynga looks for a new, more permanent CFO.
What’s next for Zynga? The company announced the delay of Dawn of Titans and CSR2 into 2016. We’ll have more on the company as it comes.
