The new game Plants vs. Zombies in Development is not Plants vs. Zombies 3
A new game Plants vs. Zombies may be in development, but Plants vs. Zombies 3 or Garden Warfare 3 – it’s a match-3 puzzle game.
A new Plants vs. Zombies The game appears to be in development, but audiences anticipating another game in the style of the first two entries in the series might want to change their expectations – the new title would be a match-3 puzzle game.
TikTok user @xavierysi, who mostly uploads content related to Apex Legends and the Plants vs Zombies Garden War series, recently posted a short video detailing a Google Form, apparently created by Plants vs. Zombies developer PopCap Games, designed to gauge interest in a potential new entry in the series. However, the Google form clearly indicates that this new potential PvZ the game is not a tower defense title like the first two games or a first person shooter like the The Garden War Games. One of the questions asked in the survey is: “Do you play or have you played puzzle and match 3 games?” »
The implication here seems pretty clear: if this form is indeed legit, and if it was indeed created by PopCap Games, then the studio seems to be considering making a match-3 and/or puzzle game based on Plants vs. Zombies.
Fan response to this information has been a bit divided. Some fans in the xavierysi comments section are thrilled to see even the slightest movement from Plants vs. Zombiesa series largely dormant since the release of garden war 2 in 2016. Others are more disappointed that PopCap Games apparently devotes its attention to another spin-off rather than PvZ 3that is confirmed to be in development, or garden war 3who is not.
Plants vs. Zombies 3 will eventually arrive – the game was announced in 2019 and a short-lived pre-alpha took place later that year – but if xavierysi’s information is correct, it may not happen until after the spin-off game. puzzle. Whereas Plants vs. Zombies is primarily a tower defense series, PopCap Games is known for making quite popular puzzle games. peg busting peggle was critically acclaimed upon its initial release, and more than a decade later its impact is still felt in games like Peglin. In terms of match-3 matches, while candy Crush might be the first one that comes to mind, PopCap actually beat King Games to the punch by about a decade with their classic tile matching game Bejeweled.
The Plants vs. Zombies match-3 has not been officially confirmed. As of this writing, it’s not even clear if the form shown in xavierysi’s TikTok was created by PopCap Games. Anything about the supposed title should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism.
