Microsoft and Zynga? More and more evidence that it might be a thing

1 min read
Not long ago I wrote an opinion piece about how Microsoft’s track record of having execs leave the company to bring their new employers into the Microsoft fold painted an intriguing picture for the potential of Zynga – Ex Xbox head, Don Mattrick’s new gig – and Microsoft becoming a thing.

Those rumours are going to persist for a while after it emerged that Mattrick at Xbox was in negotiations to acquire Zynga. Then the social network’s market value dived and those negotiations were pulled from the table, but that is why Matrick was brought in to replace Zynga founder, Mark Pincus, as the CEO of Zynga; to right the ship.

And what happens if he can do that? Do the negotiations come back on to the table? One can only assume so.
