After that tweet, another one was sent out by Dan Porter, Zynga VP, who confirmed Draw Something 2 by saying, "Thanks! So excited to confirm #DrawSomething2 is coming w/ new ways to draw & connect." Porter come over to Zynga after the latter purchased OMGPOP for $180 million about a year ago, just to grab Draw Something which had captured 20 million users in just 5 weeks. The transaction at first appeared to work out, but all of a sudden, people stopped playing the game. Zynga's stock dropped from $14 to $2.40 and Zynga ended up laying off people and closing offices. The last we heard about the company, it had partnered with a British on-line gambling company to stay alive.
Now, with a new logo, and a new television show based on the game (which Seacrest is supposedly hosting and producing), let's see if lightning can strike twice.
