Plants vs Zombies 2 delayed

"Plants vs. Zombies 2, originally slated for a July 18th release, will now be released later in the summer," the game's official Twitter announced. The reason for the delay? "Only because we want to make sure it's the best ever!"

Our John was quite fond of the game when he played it at E3. Not only that, the game recently was nominated for a Best of E3 award, so it's looking pretty sharp--even if it's suspiciously free-to-play.

Although the game will debut on iOS, PopCap isn't ruling out other versions, simply saying that it will be on Apple products "first."
