Black Hawk Reviews – Online Games: PopCap Fires Plants Vs Zombies Creator; Announces Game Sequel
PopCap has two important announcements this week: a sequel for its most popular game and staff layoffs.
Washington (I-Newswire) September 7, 2012 - PopCap has two important announcements this week: a sequel for its most popular game and staff layoffs.
It has announced the Plants vs. Zombies 2 launch will be on the spring of 2013 and promised new stuff in the game where you combat a horde of zombies by planting stuff.
“The sequel to Plants vs. Zombies is expected to launch by late spring 2013, and will include a bevy of new features, settings, and situations, designed to delight the franchise’s tens of millions of fans around the world,” according to PopCap.
However, it did not go into details about the platforms where it will be available. It was also unconfirmed if PopCap plans to make the sequel a separate game version or be an update to the current one.
PopCap, now a division of EA has released the following statements from two of its game characters regarding the sequel’s release:
“Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots. So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan… we’re freee anytime. We’ll find you.”
“There was a time we relished a bracing, hearty blend of zombies, in the morning. But first, a brisk shower and some strategic pruning are required. Tomorrow is near!”
On the other hand, PopCap offices are not in the mood to celebrate as it was announced on the same day that some of them are going to be laid off, which surprisingly includes the creator of their flagship game himself.
Senior game designer George Fan, the brain behind the smash hit game is confirmed to be included in the job cuts in PopCap offices in Ireland and Seattle.
PopCap asserts that reorganization is a must considering the fast-changing game market and that PopCap would do well to invest in new game platforms and expand its market further in Asia.
Apparently, if PopCap did not become part of EA, the job cuts could have been worse but choosing some other rip-off over Fan might be a mistake.
