Electronic Arts (EA) and Zynga have finally buried the hatchet. As you may remember from last year, EA got upset with Zynga because of The Ville supposedly being very similar to The Sims Social. Then Zynga files a counter claim that EA had “an anti-competitive and unlawful scheme to stop Zynga from hiring.” They also accused EA of violating anti-trust laws.
Today, both cases were dismissed in California court. The companies issued the statement that “EA and Zynga have resolved their respective claims and have reached a settlement of their litigation in the Northern District of California.” The cases were dismissed with prejudice so this will not be finding its way to court ever again. This also leads many to believe that money exchanged hands in one way or another.
