AllThingsD confirmed with Toney that he is no longer employed with Zynga, which should remove any doubts of his departure. Whilst Toney was with Zynga, he spent two years as the general manager of Zynga Poker, which is still to this day Zynga's longest-standing franchise. Before he was the GM of Zynga Poker, Toney lead another general manager role, but with Mobile where he worked on its publishing efforts.

Toney confirmed with the site that he doesn't have any plans for what he will move to, stating:

My departure is less about Zynga and more about the vast number of opportunities that currently exist in the Valley. I have been approached by several organization to lead teams and companies that I find exciting and compelling. It is the right time for me in my career to move on.
