Zynga Announces Zynga API for Developers

Today, in an event Zynga’s chief engineer Kostadis Roussos announced the availability of new Zynga API to third party developers. The Zynga API is designed to cut out backend servers by integrating Zynga’s standard game services.

Zynga also announced that it uses zCloud, the world’s largest hybrid cloud server to launch a game and grow it to up to 10 million players in a week. By offering these services, Zynga could potentially lure developers away from Facebook to launching Zynga.com-exclusive games.

It will be interesting to see how Facebook and Zynga relationship grows while Zynga has been focusing on its own social gaming website.
