June 29, 2011, By Christian Davis

If you have a Facebook(of course you do), then you’ve probably been invited countless times to join FarmVille, CityVille, or Marfia Wars. Well the company behind the games so addicting that they’ll hurt their children over, may be going public this week.

Zynga games is responsible for turning everyone into a gamer and as a thank you, they may be bought for $20 billion. Reuters reports that a source familiar with the initial public offering claims that Zynga plans to raise $1.5 billion  to $2 billion and could file paperwork as early as Wednesday, June 30th. The source said the company could be valued anywhere from $15 billion to $20 billion. If you happen to be in debt to a rival Mafia, that may get paid off for you.

In other news, PopCap Games, known for Plants vs Zombies and Peggle, told Reuters that they will also be filing its own IPO by the end of summer.
