A slide on the Xbox 360 dashboard seems to have revealed that Zynga’s tile-based word game, Words with Friends, is going to release on Microsoft’ next-gen console: Xbox One.
The Xbox 360 home screen has an Xbox One tile; opening it takes you to an app which has all kinds of information about Microsoft’s new console. There’s a “What it does” tab in there which loads a bunch of slides highlighting the console’s features like TV viewing, mutitasking and Skype. Words with Friends can be seen as part of the “Multitasking is a Snap” slide which shows a series of apps pinned to the console’s user interface.
Words with Friends is a word game developed by Zynga with Friends for Android, iOS and Facebook. Players can build words crossword-puzzle style with an opponent in a manner similar to the classic board game Scrabble.
We’ll let you know if either Microsoft or Zynga provides us with an confirmation that it’s indeed in development for Xbox One.
