Electronic Arts has decided "it's not about time" to release Plants vs. Zombies 2. PopCap originally announced that the sequel entitled Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time would be released on July 18, but EA announced today that it will be available "later in the summer". EA did not give a reason for the delay. Here is the tweet from the official PvsZ Twitter account.
"Plants vs. Zombies 2, originally slated for a July 18th release, will now be released later in the summer. Stay tuned for more details."
Maybe EA is pulling a Microsoft-like 180, after fans criticized their decision to only release the game for iOS devices. However, the official PvsZ YouTube page still reads: "Plants vs. Zombies will be released summer 2013, exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store." Some fans were also not happy about the game being a freemium release. This means the game will be free to download, but will most likely require in-app purchases to make it more enjoyable to play.
Allen Murray, Senior Producer for Plants vs. Zombies 2 promised fans that the game is packed with "tons of completely new content," and that it will offer a completely new playing experience.“We’re confident that players will see the love and attention we've put into this game. We've created wild new ways to experience the plants and zombies you know and love."
Hopefully Murry is right, and the long wait for Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be worth it.
