They will be "doubling down on big bets", they said.</p> <p><Strong>Features of the Draw Something 2:</strong><br /> The new Draw Something 2 includes a social feed.</p> <p>-The user can like or comment on drawings.</p> <p>-The user can also follow people using the game.</p> <p>-The user can store saved drawings using the application.</p> <p>-New drawings tools can also be saved.</p> <p>-It functions similarly to “Pictionary” where players are asked to draw images based on selected words and the opponents have to guess what the word is.</p> <p><Strong>Where is Draw Something 2 available?</strong><br /> The new Draw Something 2 is currently available in the Apple App Store in two different versions: a free, ad-supported one or a $2.99 premium app.</p> <p><Strong>Zynga's CEO Mark Pincus announced the sequel to Draw Something</strong><br /> Zynga's CEO Mark Pincus announced the launch of the sequel of Draw Something on Wednesday in the United states during Zynga’s Q1 2013 earnings conference call.</p> <p>He also announced the shut down of two "non-franchise" games this quarter and four more in Q2 2013. This news sure seems very interesting.</p> <p>Pincus also reported saying that the sequel of the most famous mobile drawing game would be available from Wednesday onwards. Draw Something 2 would probably be the first release since Zynga's acquired game creator OMGPOP.</p> <p>Zynga is definitely on for some big time company turn over by launching the new Draw Something 2 game, but will this strategy materialize without an initial hiccups? During the earrings call, closure of few of the other Zynga games was also announced. Pincus announced the shut down of two non-franchise games in Q1 2013, as these games provided short term benefits to the company, also termed at "short lived" games.</p> <p>In order to drive the company's revenue, Zynga should focus on "long term enterprise values" for the social gaming company to generate maximum benefits.</p> <p>The company also announced the closure of four more games by the end of Q2 2013, these games included The Ville, Empires &amp; Allies, Dream Zoo, and Zynga City on Tencent.</p> <p>Pincus says, “To lead on mobile, we’re pursuing the same strategy of franchise, network and profitability that drove our success on the Web.”</p> <p><Strong>What does Host Ryan Seacrest have to say about Draw Something 2?</strong><br /> Ryan Seacrest, a celebrity host last month teased 'Draw Something 2' on Twitter thus creating almost 40 million impressions on the social network in a day. </p> <p>Zynga COO David Ko said during a company's earnings call that the social gaming company is "leveraging the cultural phenomenon" of Draw Something with Draw Something 2. This will definitely increase the mobile presence of Zynga, as the main aim this year is to increase the mobile offerings.</p> <p><Strong> Revenue Graph:</strong><br /> According to the company CEO Pincus, 2013 is going to be a “transitionary year” and has cautioned investors that there will be uneven, non-linear results. Cutting down on games that do not provide long term benefits is definitely a wise move to increase the company's annual revenue.</p> <p>Pincus pointed out looking at the revenue graph of Q1 2013 that not so popular games like Zynga Poker, FarmVille, Mafia Wars, FrontierVille, CastleVille and CityVille generate only 10% of the online game revenue.</p> <p>Hopefully, revamping the successful franchises remains the best strategy and a success formula for Zynga like in the past.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-imagecaption"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The new Draw Something 2 launched by Zynga this Wednesday</p> </div> </div> </div> CEO Pincus Draw Donethng 2 Dream Zoo and the Zynga City on Tencent Empires and Alliens focus on long term games.
