Lou Castle quits Zynga role

Zynga’s VP of studios, Lou Castle, has resigned from his position to join a casino games company based in Las Vegas.

Castle departs from Zynga after only nine months on the job. He joined the Farmville company in February after his former company, InstantAction, buckled from financial pressures.

He joins Las Vegas based Shuffle Master as chief strategy officer, following six years as a board member for the company.

"The Zynga gig was clearly a 5 day a week, 24/7 requirement,” Castle explained to IndustryGamers. “I have twins in senior year of high school and Shuffle Master's a local job. Life's too short, so I couldn't resist," he said.

Zynga is believed to be making final preparations for its IPO, rumoured to be finalised this month.
