Plants and Zombies Welcomes Their New Masters

Posted by Grey Thursday, July 14, 2011

With Electronic Arts announcing the purchase of PopCap, the Plants and the Zombies of Plants vs. Zombies rise to greet their new master on Facebook.

As mentioned earlier, Electronic Arts has acquired PopCap for $650 million with an addition $100 million stock option. You can read EA's official press press right here but do head on below to check out a very quirky remark made by the zombies from PopCap's wildly successful tower defense title with an undead twist.

Here's the much more interesting and quirky official press release from PopCap:

An open letter to all our players:

As some of you may have heard, we recently announced that PopCap Games is being acquired by Electronic Arts, a small mom-and-pop boutique software publisher. What does this mean for the future? It’s simple:
1. EA is being rebranded to Poptronic Arts
2. Sim Zuma: The SwampLife Edition
3. Peggle: Dead Space – Bjorn’s Breakfast
4. Bejeweled Battlefield Blitz
5. Plants vs. ZombEAz: NFL Lockout Edition
Ok, not really.
It means PopCap will join forces with one of the world’s largest game publishers, giving us access to many more resources and a greatly expanded global audience. It doesn’t mean that PopCap is going away or changing what we do or how we do it. On the contrary, PopCap’s creative culture is the main reason EA was interested in us. We’re not changing our focus from creating awesome casual games everyone can enjoy.
So what should you really expect from us in the future as part of EA? More! More games, more platforms, more players, and more fun.
PopCap has been around for more than ten years now, and we look forward to bringing you great games for at least another decade to come!

Your friends from PopCap
