Updated with details from PopCap Games.

Plants vs Zombies 2 is not, as feared, a first-person shooter. But that doesn't mean the oft-rumored multiplayer take on PopCap's popular strategy game isn't real.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare can be seen plastered all over Los Angeles Convention Center's South Hall, where many of this year's E3 festivities will take place. This name, if you recall, was spotted long ago when EA registered domain names for it.

Rumblings of a PvZ multiplayer shooter were first heard when internet super sleuth Superannation discovered job listings from EA Canada looking for multiplayer designers with console experience. Undoubtedly, EA will officially announce the game at their press conference tomorrow.

Update: A cached version of PopCap's official website (discovered by Superannuation) gives a few more details on the "PC and console game" which is apparently powered by Battlefield's Frostbite engine.:

Plants vs. Zombies is digging into the trenches with an explosive new action experience. Blast zombies, plants and new characters across a mine-blowing PvZ world. Take on Co-op and Multiplayer action with your friends and sow the seeds of victory!

Kotaku says we can expect the game to be "in the vein of Team Fortress 2."

      You shouldn't get to choose the class. It's just a big roulette wheel and everybody hoping they're not a wall-nut.
