This move shows that Zynga intends to dive into new gaming categories. The first A Bit Lucky project will be a multiplayer and multiplatform game although acquisition terms are not yet known. A Bit Lucky founders Frederic Descamps and Jordan Maynard stated that the have had a few offers but decided that Zynga's was the one that fit them the most stating the partnership is a “meeting of the minds”. The turning point in negotiations was a meeting between the founders of both companies, A Bit Lucky chiefs said about Mark Pincus, Zynga founder, “His passion to define a new way to play and his entrepreneurial drive are very contagious”
Besides these improvements, Zynga is having issues and the worst are of a legal nature. Electronics Arts are suing them for “unmistakable copying” of their The Sims game to create Zynga's The Ville. However Zynga responded in a countersuit stating that charges are “anticompetitive and unlawful business practices.” How this will turn out for the courts to decide, but if Zynga brings a new Mortal Kombat game I'll be more than happy to FINISH HIM!
