1.Why is Mafia Wars Shakedown shutting down?

We created Mafia Wars Shakedown because we wanted to innovate the way you can interact and play with friends, and discover new ideas. It has been an important part of the larger experiment for us at Zynga Inc. in leading a new category of social mobile games. We recently started work on some exciting new games, taking in all that we've learned so far, and this has resulted in us having to make some tough decisions. In order for us to be able to move forward on to our next products, we are going to have to retire Mafia Wars Shakedown.

2.When is Mafia Wars Shakedown shutting down?

We’re sorry to announce that Mafia Wars Shakedown will be completely shut down on December 30th, 2012. If you have coins or cash remaining in your account, you can use it to access some of this content.

4.Can I get a refund instead?

Refunds are not permitted

5.Why couldn’t you give us more advance notice or time to play?

For a variety of technical and data integrity reasons, it was necessary to announce the shut-down now and close the game towards the end of December. Please contact Customer Support for information regarding payments and we’ll arrange compensation of equal value in one of Zynga’s other games.

Thank you!
