Rumor: Zynga Going After Draw Something Creators OMGPOP?

By John Colaw

Casual gaming mega-mogul Zynga might be going after creators of the insanely popular mobile game Draw Something which has taken the world by storm recently. Like Words With Friends did not long ago it seems that everybody is playing Draw Something and chances are if your friend is sitting there messing with their phone for a long period of time, that’s what they’re doing.

Nothing is certain at this point but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did happen and if so it would be another mega-hit acquisition for Zynga who actually absorbed Words With Friends after its success. Zynga’s main strategy seems to be the same as Google’s: if we can’t make it ourselves, lets just buy it. Hard to fault them when it’s clearly working.

When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
