"Over the last 7 months, our teams have been working with a sense of urgency," said CEO Don Mattrick in a statement. "We finished 2013 in a strong position and expect 2014 to be a growth year.

"Our market is growing as measured by device, audience and dollars and we have the privilege to compete in one of the fastest growing parts of the entertainment industry. We have an ambitious agenda and we are moving quickly to add capabilities that are complementary and strategic to our core growth plans," he added.

"We?ve reached our first milestones - creating #1 top-grossing and top-free titles - on our own. We can't wait to see what we can achieve together with Zynga."

Finally, Zynga announced plans to cutt 314 employees, approximately 15% of its workforce.
