Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time Release Date Delayed

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."

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time

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.

PopCap Teases Plants vs. Zombies Sequel

PopCap has released a teaser trailer for Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time. The video posted to YouTube offers very little information about the upcoming game, but it does mention the sequel will be released sometime this July.

Some fans are concerned that the sequel will be plagued by too many in-app purchases now that PopCap is division of Electronic Arts Inc. Various iOS users have complained that the in-app purchases and upgrades for EA's Real Racing 3 were unreasonable, and made the game unbearable to play. Fans have their fingers crossed that EA does not go down the same road with the Plant vs. Zombie sequel.

PopCap, a division of Electronic Arts Inc, has rolled out the first of many planned sequels to Plants vs. Zombies as a closed beta on Facebook. Plants vs. Zombies Adventures is a social media game where players can interact online while thwarting the zombie invasion. PopCap will officially roll out PvZ Adventures to the general public this spring, before releasing Zombie vs. Plants 2 this summer.

Curt Bererton, head of PopCap’s San Francisco studio, promises Plants vs. Zombies Adventures will feature plenty of new plants and zombies, along with old favorites.

“The [game] features all-new forms of zombie combat that will open PvZ to a whole new world, explained Bereton. "We like to think we’re creating a brand new twist on the classic Plants vs. Zombies that is the most social, shareable and expansive Plants vs. Zombies experience ever.”
