The long-time legal battle between Zynga and Digital Chocolate, over the rights to use the name “Mafia Wars”, has been finally settled. The Recorder reported that two companies recently reached an out-of-court deal for an undisclosed amount. The terms are also currently unknown, with Zynga still using the title for its Facebook game.
Zynga was having such a good year. What with huge investments and successfully avoiding being just another wholly acquired social gaming company, 2010 was looking to be the Year of Zynga. But the casual developer’s flagship title, Mafia Wars, has hit multiple road-blocks in the past couple of days.
