- Earlier today, Gamefront had an anonymous source claiming PopCap Games, maker of the Plants vs. Zombies titles, had suffered a round of layoffs. Parent company Electronic Arts wouldn't comment on the source's number of 30 jobs lost, but did provide the site with a statement from PopCap GM and co-founder John Vechey confirming that some people had been let go:"The changes we made today at PopCap were painful and we're sorry to lose some of our friends and colleagues. But it was also necessary in order to stay on course with our future plans for mobile games, live services, and new IP. PopCap is a studio that made its name building great games that the world can fall in love with, and that's what we'll continue to do."This isn't the first time PopCap has suffered a reduction in headcount since it was purchased by EA in July 2011. Fifty employees were laid off from North American locations in August 2012, and the company's Dublin studio was closed a month later.
- Remember that truckload of money that Apple supposedly dumped on EA's doorstep for exclusive first dibs on Plants vs Zombies 2? It looks liked those dibs are about to run out. PopCap announced today that the game is now available in select markets - Australia and New Zealand, to be specific - for Android devices.This isn't the very first time that PvZ2 has hit Android, mind you. The Chinese edition hit Google Play last month. Considering China's love for Plants vs Zombies and Android's dominance in the Chinese market, though, it's pretty understandable that this is where PopCap would want to strike first. Head of EA Labels Frank Gibeau has been quoted as saying that the Android version is outselling the iOS version 6-to-1 in China.There's no specific date on when the zombie invasion of Google Play will go global, but PopCap has assured us that it can be expected "shortly." Keep an eye on the Play Store, folks. As you can see in our review from the August iOS release, this one is definitely a keeper.
- Peggle may have been born on the PC, but its sequel isn't looking to share a common set of roots. PopCap has entered into a deal with Microsoft to launch both title on Xbox One first, with other platforms to follow.
- Have you ever woken up in the morning and thought "I'd rather be in Australia?" Kangaroo accidents aside, it's a pretty sweet place to be - especially if you like Plants vs. Zombies. That's because PopCap has just soft launched the game's sequel down under.
- In what has quickly become one of my favorite surprises at this year's E3 so far, Electronic Arts opened up their big press conference today by officially announcing Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare for Xbox One, and eventually Xbox 360. Garden Warfare has been a long-rumored name for the upcoming Plants vs. Zombies sequel after numerous web domains were registered for the title last year, but now we have the official confirmation that this is in fact a whole separate beast, and a mighty pretty beast at that!
- E3 is a magical week full of magical announcements, and few games are as magical as Peggle. And so, with a "blink and you'll miss it" announce during EA's press conference, PopCap Games' founder John Vechey confirmed that we'll have a full sequel to Peggle before the end of the year.
- Braaaaaaaainnnnsss. If you've got any, you'll want to check out PopCap's upcoming Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. But why wait for the game's public launch on Facebook when you can shuffle into the closed beta this May?
- There's money to be made in China, but western game developers haven't had the best luck making it. Part of this can be attributed to China's stance towards video games, but according to James Gwertzman, PopCap's Head of Strategic Development, some of the problem also lies with how western developers approach the market in the first place. In a GDC talk titled "OMG! Zombies on the Great Wall of China," Gwertzman discussed PopCap's massive success with Plants vs. Zombies in China, as well as how developers can fare better in the country.
