Games journalist Ian Miles Cheong just tweeted: “Zynga just fired over a hundred people, giving them two hours to clear out their desks. They did it during the Apple keynote to avoid press.”We’ve reached out to Zynga PR for confirmation or denial and will update this post shortly. 

Zynga is having a rough go of it. It pre-announced its third quarter earnings a couple weeks ago, warning investors of huge losses.

The stock is down from a high of ~$15 to $2.
