Zynga, maker of Farmville, teams up with Disney for new Star Wars mobile game
Zynga and Disney have just announced they have signed a multi-year agreement to develop a new free-to-play Star Wars mobile game. The agreement will also see that Zynga will become the sole operator of the live service of Star Wars: Commander, a free-to-play real-time strategy game that's been released by Disney back in 2014.

Disney's Senior VP of Games and Interactive Experiences, Kyle Laughlin says that his company needed Zygna's expertise in developing popular games and that the agreement signed today is meant to further expand the beloved Star Wars universe.

The announcement clearly mentions that Zynga's NaturalMotion studios will be in charge with the development of future Zynga Star Wars mobile games, but it will also take care of the live services operations for the long-running Star Wars: Commander game.

What it doesn't say is when exactly can we expect more details about the first Star Wars game Zynga will bring to mobile devices, but our bet is that it will take at least several months just to announce something publicly.
