Plants vs Zombies sequel coming in early 2013
PopCap officially announced today that a sequel to its smashing hit Plants vs Zombies is coming in 2013. It was about time, we have to add! It has been well over a year since the game was released on iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile, and its millions of fans, us included, have been starting to wonder whether a Plants vs Zombies 2 (the name is just a guess) is being considered.
Details are scarce at this time, but we are being reassured that new types of plants and new kinds of zombies will be introduced in the Plants vs Zombies sequel. The game will also come loaded with a "bevy of new features, settings, and situations".
PopCap is aiming for a spring release of the next Plants vs Zombie game, which, unfortunately, is still at least half a year ahead in the future. We sure hope that the new installment of this awesome game will be well worth the lengthy wait.
