The wait is almost over. PopCap initially announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2 would be coming out in July but the company later delayed the game “to make sure [it] lives up to fans’ expectations.” There wasn’t a solid release date after the delay but now there’s info that points to tomorrow’s release of Plants vs. Zombies 2 for iOS.
Apple’s App Store Facebook page put up a teaser image today of an animated zombie hand reaching out of the ground. The caption reads “It’s about time. Guess what game is coming tomorrow?”
The original Plants vs. Zombies debuted in 2009, making it a long four years leading up to its sequel. It’s not just a nip-and-tuck update to the game either; PopCap has made a controversial move to make the game free-to-play. While a free game sounds great, there will inevitably be in-app purchases that can drive the game far beyond its usual sub-$5 price.
