The Internet group Anonymous seems to be turning it’s attention to the social media game developer Zynga. The group, who are responsible for digital attacks across the world, recently released a message declaring their intentions:
Zynga customers and Facebook users , We are anonymous . During the last few days anonymous has been targeting Zynga for the outrageous treatment of their employees and their actions against many developers .
We have come to believe that this actions of Zynga will result in massive layoff of a thousand people and legal actions against everyone that speaks to the public about this plan.
It will also come to end of the US game market as we know it as all this jobs will be replaced in other more convenient financial countries.
With a billion dollars cash sitting in a bank we do believe that such actions are an insult to the population and the behaviour of corporations like Zynga must change.
Anonymous could not allow this to happen so it’s starting to release confidential documents we have leaked on this plan
As we speak we are planning to release also all the games we’ve taken from their servers for free.
That being said we will stop the idea of the distribution of such games if Zynga will cease immediately the plan.
Zynga recently let 150 employee’s go following a rather dismal third financial quarter. Zynga already has a number of subsidiaries in Bangalore, India, so we can only assume that Anonymous means to take Zynga to task for the outsourcing of jobs. Adam Gauntlett, at the Escapist, has suggested that it may actually be in Zynga’s best interest “to take an Anonymous hit in the short term in the hope of ensuring its long term survival”, which raises some very interesting possibilities in what is sure to be a continuing story.
