p Torsten Reil, the founder of Zynga‘s NaturalMotion division, has decided to leave the company for personal reasons.

/p p Zynga just made the announcement, just after announcing its results for the first quarter.

Reil has played a key role in the past couple of years at Zynga, running the United Kingdom-based studio that built the popular CSR Racing 2 game and just released Dawn of Titans five months ago.

/p p During a different era under previous CEO Don Mattrick, Zynga paid $527 million to buy NaturalMotion.

That deal helped Zynga expand beyond casual games to hardcore titles on mobile, such as racing and strategy games.

/p p “We want to thank Torsten for his many contributions to Zynga over the last three years,” said Frank Gibeau, CEO of Zynga, in a statement.
