Plants vs Zombies 2 Release Delayed

Plants vs Zombies 2

Plants vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time will not launch on its originally planned release date of July 18 and will instead be available later this summer, developer PopCap Games announced.

The developer said via Twitter the sequel to the hit mobile game will launch later this summer but failed to give any further specifics. The reason for the delay is also unknown.

Plants vs Zombies 2 was set to hit iOS devices first on July 18. Despite the delayed release date, PopCap Games still plans to release the game on Apple mobile platforms first. However, the developer does intend to make Plants vs Zombies 2 available on various other platforms, including Android, at a later date.

Unlike the original, Plants vs Zombies 2 is planned as a free download with in-game microtransactions. PopCap insists every zombie type and level will be available for players who do not make a single purchase within the game. However, gamers will be able to buy in-game items and upgrades.

PopCap is bringing Crazy Dave back for the second installment of the Plants vs Zombies franchise. This time around, Dave is equipped with a time machine that will take players to famous locations such as Ancient Egypt and the Wild West.

Plants vs Zombies 2 was built from the ground up by PopCap, and the company expects the game world to expand. Players can expect new content and levels to be released for the game months after its initial launch.

While an always-on Internet connection is not necessary when playing Plants vs Zombies 2, the game will require an online connection in order for PopCap to update the game and to provide new content as it is released.

The announcement trailer for Plants vs Zombies 2 can be viewed below. The minute-long trailer features a cinematic Crazy Dave as he flies out on his time machine.

    Eh. This game has lost some of its mindlessness. I could play it while at work, but now that’s impossible. Booooo.
