Zynga’s design chief walks

Zynga lost yet another executive today with the departure of Brian Reynolds.

The company faced a mass exodus of its leadership last year, and the loss of its head game designer is certainly a poor way to ring in the new year.

Reynolds was lead game designer on Firaxis’s Civilization II, as well as Alpha Centauri, Colonization, Rise of Nations, and Rise of Legends.

He joined Zynga in 2009 from Big Huge Games, and was lead designer on Farmville.
