Zynga founder Mark Pincus says he’s ‘bored with all games’

Is Zynga founder and chairman Mark Pincus done with the game industry? The jury’s out on that decision, but it appears that he’s at least getting tired of it. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Pincus said during an informal rooftop meeting in Israel that he was “pretty bored with all games.”

Could Pincus’ interest be waning after all the turmoil that’s been happening at Zynga, including the departure of three top executives, his resignation as CEO, repeated layoffs, and shuttering of games? It’s said that he’s trying to find his next obsession: “I want that addiction again.”
