pvzPopCap has shared few details about the sequel to its popular lane defense game Plants vs. Zombies after announcing the follow up in late March, but today the company offered up a more solid July release date along with a teaser trailer.

Though the trailer does not give any hints about the gameplay, it does poke fun at the lengthy amount of time between releases. The original Plants vs. Zombies game was released in 2009, with an iOS version available in 2010.


According to the video, PopCap will be officially calling the sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time. Though no specific platforms have been announced for the release, the popularity of the title on iOS suggests that a simultaneous iOS and PC debut is likely. Apple recently revealed that Plants vs. Zombies is the 12th top all time paid app for the iPhone.

The problem is see with this is that when PvZ2 comes out the orignal PvZ will be abandoned and there will be no more updates. I even seen old version of games disappear from the App Store. At least I got the original PvZ as a free app of the week.
You are actually complaining that you are not getting more free content for a game that is already massive and considered a gem, and you even got the game for free? Wow... People these days..

I just hope it won't be IAP-centric. As much as I loved the first game and played it numerous times, I won't be doing this sequel if I can't just buy it for $4.99 or even $9.99, without penny-pinching IAP.
