Zynga seeking tax break to keep San Francisco base

"Serious discussions with the city" ongoing as future of headquarters becomes uncertain

Social game developer Zynga is said to be 'encouraged' by ongoing discussions with local government over the future of its San Francisco headquarters.

The Farmville creator has threatened to leave the city unless it receives tax exemptions similar to those recently given to networking site Twitter, according to Market Watch.

A spokesperson for the company admitted it is engaged in "serious discussions" with officials, though they declined to comment further at this time.

Zynga, which could be worth as much as $10 billion, only moved into its current premises in September of last year and has space for around 2000 employees at the site.
