It feels like I’ve been waiting four whole years for a proper sequel to my favorite plant-themed strategy game, Plants vs. Zombies. Oh wait a minute, that’s because it has been four whole years since the original Plants vs. Zombies was first released on PC and Mac platforms back in 2009. Rumors began circulating early this year that the sequel would come with the subheading “Garden Warfare,” but the lack of any real confirmation from the zombies themselves left many of us fans thinking: what’s taking so long PopCap?!
This is why it is so deliciously fitting that PopCap has officially named the long-awaited sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time. And no, that isn’t a tongue-in-cheek joke here: this is actually going to be the name of the new game. As part of today’s big unveiling, PopCap has posted a funny announcement video on their Facebook page, which showcases many internet goers and PvZ fans asking that same burning question: where the heck is Plants vs. Zombies 2?
Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time will be released in July 2013, right in the middle of summer, when our sunflowers and pea shooters are sure to be in full bloom. That release is getting closer by the second, and luckily we still have this month’s Plants vs. Zombies Adventures to meet our daily dose of Crazy Dave while we wait.
