Tech giant, Google is reported to have made a silent investment in Zynga, in a view to develop proprietary games. It has announced that the device will hit the markets in 2011.
According to a TechCrunch report courtesy "multiple" sources, Google has divulged worth between $100 and $200 million in Farmville and Mafia Wars creator, Zynga.
Also, the report made an estimate of Zynga's worth, outlining that its revenue for the first half of 2010 stands at a whooping $350 million level.
In addition, sources have reported that investment is only a small proportion of a bigger maneuver. According to the blog, Zynga will be tagged as the label of Google's own gaming service, Google Games. However, no further specifications related to other features and offering by Google Games have been unveiled.
Since, Zynga's games are highly up on the social level, it is clear enough that Google Games will also be heavily social.
Google’s new step is cited to be its attempts to have its foot in every sector. One might be considering Google’s entry in every market on Earth as vague.
Many mock the giant as helpless in focusing on one single project and conducting numerous different experiments at one time. However, one cannot deny the fact that few of them actually touch the level, where it hails itself as a complete and robust product.
