EA registered website domains at three different addresses last week, and all were variations on the name ‘Plants vs Zombies Adventures’. Is this PopCap’s rumoured TF2-style shooter? Let’s label up the available evidence in plastic sandwich bags and see what’s what.
The registrations were spotted by internet uber-sleuth Superannuation, who last year uncovered a reference to a “AAA console game” running on Frostbite 2 in a job listing for PopCap’s Burnaby studio.
Cross-reference that with the multiplayer-oriented FPS “in the vein of Team Fortress 2″ a Kotaku source claimed a small team at PopCap Barnaby has been working on of late, and we might have an effigy of Plants vs Zombies Adventures. Or perhaps Adventures is another game entirely.
What’s certain is that it isn’t Plants vs Zombies 2, the tower defence sequel proper announced in August, which we already know to be subtitled Garden Warfare.
So what do you think it is?
