It has been confirmed that Zynga has purchased Draw Something maker OMGPOP. According to a report on ArsTechnica, via AllThingsD, the offer from the firm is worth around the $210 million mark.

Draw Something has been downloaded over 35 million times, has produced 1 billion drawings (3,000 per second at its peak) across 84 languages, and is just one of 35 social games created by OMGPOP which has been around since 2006.

OMGPOP said new features will be added to the game, such as chat, galleries and even the possibility of drawing your own avatar picture now that it has Zynga behind it.
