I don't really know anything about Zynga, but I'm glad it's not EA. Disney is bad enough. Disney + EA? *shudder*

In other words, I see how this news could hardly be anything but good.

But Artoo has been known to be wrong. From time to time.

The line of Disney games is in chaos, I always say that Disney understands movies of pets and princesses, not electronic games. If this news was a few years ago (when Disney bought Lucasfilm) I would be optimistic, but today... I'm skeptical.

After the Windows Purge, I play SWC every day as if it were the last day.

+ 1 I just want Zynga to make this game better. I too am hearing Zynga first time.

You would be (sadly) surprised. I swore off playing another Zynga game after watching how the company handled themselves with others. Maybe they have significantly improved.

Could we possibly have an offical swc forum and communication with the development team again?


Here's to hoping. This dream was actually my first hope as well. Time will tell.

EVERYONE:

Disney selling SWC development to Zynga follows their published game strategy as noted by the following Quote:

10 May 2016

After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model.

...

Disney announced it's cancelling the Infinity line, and is getting out of the business of self-publishing games altogether.


(Source: here)

This "business transaction" by Zynga (taking over control of SWC) would not have been done if it did not make some kind of financial sense.

So at least for the foreseeable future SWC will continue.

I will hope that Zynga applies resources to SWC, but fearful that what they really paid for was the license to develop two new Star Wars games... As previously pointed out, unless they keep some continuity with the current developer team, inheriting someone else’s four year old code might not be the priority...
