Zynga’s Justin Waldron is leaving the company he co-founded over six years ago.

I’ve decided it’s time to leave zynga and venture off on my own again,” he said ina Facebook post. It’s been 6 and a half years since we pushed the button to launch our first game, and each moment since has been magic.”

Waldron is still in his 20’s, and was one of the few remaining founders left at the company.
