303518_largerThe EA press conference at E3 2013 in Los Angeles started with a bang: PopCap Games is working on the next game in the Peggle franchise, Peggle 2.

The reveal came at the end of a live demo for Plants vs. Zombies 2: Garden Warfare, and it was pretty short. In fact, it was simply PopCap Games co-founder John Vechey jumping up and screaming that Peggle 2 is coming this year -- no footage, no images, and no platforms were announced. But, hey, Peggle 2. That's worth getting excited about.

Of course, Peggle eventually made it to iPhone [$0.99]. The iPad version hit way later [$0.99 (HD)] in 2011. Considering how well they were both received, and how into mobile PopCap is these days, it's hard to imagine that Peggle 2 won't see a release on iPad or iPhone. But that's just our speculation.

We'll get some firm details in the coming days, we're sure.

    Hmmm... With all due respect, I wouldn't be surprised if P2 follows the Freemium trend. Peggle's a great game though!

    In other news, EA teased the upcoming Sequel #3, which will revisit the environment/location players loved so much.
    The developer in charge assured long time fans that "nothing will change due to the EA merger, we look forward to continuing as before, and EA have promised to be hands off in their management."

    The ending of that Peggle 2 announce is one of the most awkward things I've ever seen. It's like it was approaching on being funny, but the guys timing was so off that it just became weird. Not helped by the fact that it was so quite you could hear a penny drop.
