Last August, PopCap Games vaguely announced a sequel to their mega-hit tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies ($0.99), providing no real details but confirming that the game was a real thing that was in the works and slated for release sometime in “late spring 2013." There has basically been no word on the status of the sequel since then.
Today, while announcing a limited beta launch of a Facebook version of the game called Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, PopCap once again vaguely confirmed that Plants vs. Zombies 2 is still a real thing that is still in the works, and rather than the late spring release window we should be seeing the game hit sometime during “early summer."
While there are still no details regarding what the new sequel will contain, Plants vs. Zombies Adventures on Facebook will feature new plant types, new zombies, new kinds of defenses, and all sorts of Facebook-y social integration. I imagine that Plants vs. Zombies 2 will entail many of those types of things too.
If you’re interested in the Facebook version, check out the Plants vs. Zombies Adventures page for information on the beta and eventual release, and if we get any actual information on Plants vs. Zombies 2 then we’ll be sure to report it to you here.
