Draw Something 2 launching 'later today' in US, says Zynga

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Draw Something 2 will be released "later today" in the U.S., said Zynga CEO Mark Pincus during an investor call this afternoon.

It's unclear if the social drawing title will be available only on iOS, or on Android as well. Draw Something 2 is already available on iOS in Sweden (where it costs 22 kronor) and Canada (CA$2.99).

"We believe Draw Something 2 has huge potential to grow," said David Ko, Zynga's chief operating officer, during the call. According to Ko, the game has appeared in the top five titles on the Canadian iTunes App Store.

Television host Ryan Seacrest announced Draw Something 2 on his Twitter account last month. Dan Porter, who had been the CEO of Draw Something developer OMGPOP — which Zynga acquired in March 2012left the studio earlier this month.

We've reached out to Zynga for more details and will update this article with any information we receive.

Update: Zynga confirmed to Polygon that Draw Something 2 is free-to-play and is available on the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. An Android version was not announced. The studio said the game will contain a palette of new features including: a live social feed, your own gallery, a "Free Draw" mode that allows players to draw whatever they want and share it with friends, new drawing tools and tons of new words.
