The attack is said to be in response to the financial situation at Zynga, and its treatment of its employees.
The Zynga layoffs will bring about the “end of the US game market as we know it,” according to a post on the AnonNews site.
The group explained the reasoning behind the planned attacks, as well as leaking an alleged strategy document from Zynga.
Here is an extract of Anonymous’ statement:
During the last few days, Anonymous has been targeting Zynga for the outrageous treatment of their employees and their actions against many developers.
We have come to believe that this actions of Zynga will result in massive layoff of a thousand people and legal actions against everyone that speaks to the public about this plan.
It will also come to end of the US game market as we know it as all this jobs will be replaced in other more convenient financial countries.
With a billion dollars cash sitting in a bank we do believe that such actions are an insult to the population and the behaviour of corporations like Zynga must change.
