Rumour – Zynga making moves on Draw Something publisher

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 19 March 2012 22:48 GMT

Trade whispers say Zynga is the most aggressive suitor of a number of companies eager to snap up OMGPop.

BusinessInsider claims rumours of a $150 million bid from Zynga to acquire OMGPop are actually too modest.

The site’s sources said “everyone is making a move” on OMGPop, with some pursuing more aggressively than others.

OMGPop is said to be open to the prospect of an acquisition.

The casual and social publisher has rocketed to the top of the App Store charts with the smash-hit Draw Something. The cross-platform Pictionary-like app has enjoyed similar success to Words with Friends and its ilk.
