Never deny the power of a zombie - or a great sequel.
Electronic Arts announced today during its pre-Gamescom press conference that Plants vs. Zombies 2 surpassed 16 million downloads in its first week, making it the biggest mobile game launch in the company's history.
The following figures were revealed:
-Over 11 billion suns generated -Over 2 billion zombie waves -Over 4 billion plants planted -Over 25 million hours played
The popularity of the game is justified, since it's an outstanding sequel, as you can see in our review.
"We are grateful and delighted with the incredible reception Plants vs. Zombies 2 has received from consumers around the globe," said Tony Leamer, Franchise Business Director for Plants vs. Zombies. "We certainly had high hopes for the game, but to see fans playing the game so quickly and in such huge numbers is truly amazing."
EA isn't done with the franchise - not by a long shot. The company announced that it will release an expansion for the sequel, titled Far Future, which is currently in the works. There's no release date yet, but it's expected to arrive later this year.
