A short update on the official Plants vs Zombies Twitter account delivered some bad news, at least for fans of the popular game – Plants vs Zombies 2 will not be launched on July 18, but “later in the summer.”
The highly-anticipated sequel should have hit the App Store on July 18 – we would assume that the Android version would have followed rather quickly – but that’s not the case anymore. For unknown reasons, PopCap has decided to postpone the launch:
Plants vs. Zombies 2, originally slated for a July 18th release, will now be released later in the summer. Stay tuned for more details.

Is there something wrong with Plants vs Zombies 2? We have no way of knowing that at this time, but we’ll be back with updates once they’re available. Meanwhile, you can always check out the available trailer for the upcoming game:
For what it’s worth, the company is also working on a Plants vs Zombies-based first-person shooter that’s called Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare and which will be released later this year for Xbox – most likely in fall when new Xbox One console is launched.
