PopCap to Launch Plants vs. Zombies Sequel in 2013

Plants vs. Zombies, one of the more entertaining mobile games of the last few years, will have a sequel some time in the first half of 2013, according to the game’s creators. This morning, PopCap announced that the “underground growth” of the new PvZ is expected to launch by “late spring 2013.” They plan to introduce a bevy of new features, settings, situations, “designed to delight the franchise’s tens of millions of fans.”

Personally, I can’t wait. Plants vs. Zombies was one of those games that Android enthusiasts had to wait what seemed like an extraordinary amount of time to get. Hopefully this time around, they launch on a variety of platforms.

  • I really dont understand people on here talking of no support for the nexus. Get it off the amazon app store and it runs perfect

    These guys fail at fixing their games, almost every other comment in the market is about how it doesn’t work. Personally it doesn’t work on my phone either. And because they make you download extra content after buying the game from the market, the 15 minutes you get to refund is wasted… I wasted my money on it.

    Oh, and because it’s EA, they don’t associate an email, so you can’t email a developer about getting it fixed, or getting a refund.

    Support for the Galaxy Nexus would be nice (/me shakes his fist at PopCap angrily)

    • EvanTheGamer

    If only the updated the original for better GNex support. Or better yet, Peggle, which doesn’t work at all!
