+1000 Zynga are here to make money and StrikerRebel quite rightly pointed out. they've bought the rights off of Disney and will want to claim that back or at least a chunk of it. so I can't see them shutting it down so soon.
It is possible that they had to buy SWC in order for them to be able to get rights to start building the other Star Wars game that they are already working on (we saw their hiring postings) and they never had any intention to do anything with this game other than maintaining it until the new movie comes out and then terminating it. If this is the case, they will put minimal effort/cost into maintaining the game until they pull the plug.
Good Point I'd forgot about that to be fair. that definitely could be a factor they had to take SWC whilst making the new game.
