The thing about zombies is that they always come back. In fact, their relentlessness is their sole talent aside from cracking open skulls and sucking out brains with the deftness of a squirrel working a walnut. That’s why no one was really surprised to learn that PopCap is working on Plants vs Zombies 2, but now we have a time frame for its release: “early summer.”
The news about the follow-up to PopCap’s hit tower defense game comes courtesy of a press release that was distributed earlier this week. The press release focuses primarily on the upcoming beta launch of Plants vs Zombies Adventures, a social/Facebook adaptation of the franchise, but there are a couple of tidbits about Plants vs Zombies 2 threaded in the copy.
We still know very little about the game, but it’s safe to bet on new zombies, new plants, and new battlegrounds. You can also count on the zombies to trample all over your freshly-seeded lawn. They’re kind of rude.
