TechCrunch reported that in order to prepare for the launch of Google Games this year, Google has invested a lot of many in Zynga, the company behind Mafia Wars and Farmville. Multiple sources report that Google and not Google Ventures invested in Zynga. As proof of Google’s future extension into games, you can check this “Product Management Leader, Games” job posting at their Mountain View campus. Could this and Google Me, be the end of Facebook? We’ll see.
If you do get the job, please don’t forget about me and please convince Larry and Sergey to invest in my future companies.
