The most attention-grabbing line was the following:

“Facebook recently rolled out an advanced version of its developer platform and publishers are required to migrate to the new platform soon. Since Zynga has decided not to migrate ten of its existing games to this new platform, its FB-related business will further drop over the future”

So we gazed what else we could stumble on these 10 games which are not named yet.

A first is already publicized by Zynga.
