We thought it was coming tomorrow, but no, PopCap and EA have surprised us with the launch of Plants vs. Zombies 2 on Android today. You can grab it from Google Play this minute for free. After an initial launch on iOS (and a rumor about truckloads of money to keep it off Android), then launches on Android in China and Australia, the wait is finally over.
PopCap took to its official Plants Vs. Zombies page on Facebook, hypebeasting what could be the release of Plants Vs. Zombies 2 for American Android users. Finally finally finally. It was launched just a little bit ago for iOS, and there were plenty of conspiracy theorists out there saying Apple paid PopCap off to hold back on an Android release. Who knows if that was the case.

If you are one of the millions of people patiently waiting for Plants vs. Zombies 2 to launch onto Google Play here in America, the time may be right around the corner. Apparently, the app finally launched in Australia and New Zealand Play stores this week, and Ausdroid has received word that it should roll out globally “shortly.” (more…)
The timeline has gone from “early summer” to “summer” all the way down to “sometime this fall.” Even still, PopCap and EA assure us that Plants vs. Zombies 2 is coming eventually. The delay of the Android version of this game has gotten out of hand, but news today straight from inside EA say that there is a reason behind it: Apple has paid to keep it delayed. (more…)
We have been awaiting the release of Plants vs. Zombies 2 for what feels like forever. Finally, it has arrived on Android, sort of. The only downer is that Popcap can’t seem to get anything right on the Android side of things, and still has yet to publish this game to Google Play. According to their blog, no matter where you live, the game will be available this fall. (more…)
Well, it’s August and Plants Vs. Zombies 2 is finally launches tomorrow. Wait a tick, what’s that? Do we see an iOS-exclusive launch taking place? That’s right, PopCap’s sequel to the incredibly successful first Plants Vs. Zombies is not launching on any other platform besides iOS, at least for the time being. Are we incredibly shocked? No, not at all, but it still sucks for big PvZ fans like us.
When it was announced that it was hitting iOS, users took to Twitter to find out about support for their favorite mobile platform. According to the official Twitter for PvZ, there is no news to share at this time regarding a release for other platforms, but that we should “stay tuned.” (more…)
Could Plants vs. Zombies 2 be the next Duke Nukem Forever? Sure, they haven’t been developing the game for more than a decade or anything, but with all of these delays and soft launches, it sort of feels like it. Today, PopCap’s Sr. Producer Allen Murray, took to the company’s blog to announce the availability or lack thereof of their upcoming mega title.
The game has technically launched, but it’s a soft launch that is taking place in only Australia and New Zealand. Yeah, that’s kind of a bummer for anyone who has been waiting for this sequel since earlier this year. (more…)
The name of the game may be Plants vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time, but PopCap is asking for a little more development before they release their game. The game that was first promised in “early summer” was officially announced last month with a release date of July 18, but today PopCap took to Twitter to announce that release schedule isn’t going to be made.
