Rockstar, Zynga and 2K owner Take-Two Interactive are closing down Playdots, the New York-based studio behind the popular mobile game Two points, Bloomberg has called. 65 employees will lose their jobs, the company confirmed to Bloomberg.
The company confirmed that the puzzle game “will continue at another Zynga studio and there will be no service interruption.” It added that “everyone affected by this decision will have the opportunity to apply for other roles at Zynga.”
Take-Two acquired Playdots in 2020 for $192 million and specifically credited Two Dots in its first-quarter 2022 earnings report, saying it was “among the largest contributors to … net sales.” While it might seem odd then to eliminate the studio behind the game, some restructuring was probably inevitable after Zynga’s $12.7 billion acquisition.
