Plants Vs. Zombies 2 Coming This Summer

PopCap has confirmed that Plants Vs. Zombies 2 will be arriving this summer. The original is one of the biggest hits for the company, which was purchased by EA for $650 million in cash plus $650 million more in stock and potential earn-outs back in 2011.


PopCap didn't release any information about the sequel, but has launched another PvZ title for Facebook called Plants vs. Zombies Adventures:
Unlike the original, Adventures has players defending a motor home from waves of zombies, and the undead don’t just walk in a straight line this time. They can follow paths that turn and twist, like in other tower-defense titles. New plants like the Beet — which, uh, beats enemies — will help deal with these more complex attack patterns.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures also has a town-building mechanic that has players upgrading various properties to earn new resources. This aspect of the game also reveals PopCap’s social and monetization strategy.

Am willing to admit that if the game is basically unplayable without them then I shall be pirating them.

Also start making universal apps instead of HD and iPhone version D:

Then release a slight update, which tweaks the zombie's appearance, charge full price for it, and make the previous in app purchases not work and forcing people to re-buy them. It's the EA way!

PvZ is my favorite iOS game ever. I'm really worried that EA has ruined it considering Real Racing and SimCity. There are actually two SimCity irritants btw: there's the recent DRM fiasco on the PC release, but remember how instead of updating and improving the iOS SimCity release they offered a "new" version as a separate purchase? Boooooooo
