In an interview with Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, he stated:
“We haven’t announced it but you can expect a partnership with Zynga in the future.”
This was already rumored to be in the works following heavy investments of over $100 million by Google into the company surfaced amongst news surrounding the two partnering on the “Google Games” platform.

So when Google Games is announced, you can definitely expect Zynga to be right there alongside. No doubt with their popular Farmville, intact. Although that’s just an educated guess…
