New Peggle game in the works

Hot off the heels of the release of Peggle 2 for Xbox One and Xbox 360, it appears that PopCap Games is already hard at work on a new follow-up to the peg-bouncing puzzle series.

Peggle 2 has certainly been keeping us busy since its release on Xbox One last year and Xbox 360 earlier this year, with all new characters and challenges to overcome with the drop of a single ball. However, it doesn't appear that PopCap Games is done yet with the franchise, as a new sequel is already in the works.

During its first quarter 2015 earnings call, Electronic Arts confirmed the existence of a new Peggle project, but didn't go into detail about when it would be coming, or for which platforms. "A much-anticipated new Peggle game from PopCap is moving through a test period in preparation for launch," said CEO Andrew Wilson. The game will reportedly be a part of EA Mobile's push with new releases, which also includes a new Madden game for tablet and phone devices.

There's the possibility that the game could be an enhanced port of Peggle 2, one that could even make its way to PlayStation platforms, like Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is doing next month. Until we hear from PopCap, though, your guess is as good as ours.

      Great game. Multiplayer felt a bit imbalanced though.

      I say 'felt' because maybe it isn't. I didn't really play enough to ever say for sure, but it did seem like Gnorman with his electrical powers dominated the point-based competitive piece of the game (at least in the casual games I played on Xbone).

      How about just give us Peggle 2 on the PC or mobile like we all want? I recognize that is probably what is "in the works" but I feel like the Xbone exclusive deal was a terrible idea for PopCap.
