BREAKING NEWS: Zynga and Facebook Sign Five Year Deal

Tue, May 18, 2010

Facebook, Social

For the past few weeks, we’ve been discussing the ins and outs of a potential break on the part of mega game developer Zynga from Facebook, in favor of a website that Zynga could call their own (and run with their own rules).

Apparently, sources close to these discussions either overestimated Zynga’s willingness to leave, or Facebook and Zynga have had enough discussions to settle whatever qualms both had about the use of Facebook Credits in Zynga’s games like FarmVille, Mafia Wars and Cafe World.

Even if all isn’t calm in the waters between the two companies, we won’t be seeing a split anytime soon, as, according to the Associated Press, the companies today announced a five-year partnership that will keep games like FarmVille on Facebook.

The specific details about the partnership are being kept quiet by both parties as of this writing, but we’ll be sure to let you know more if and when further details arise.
