“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.”

  • Over 11 billion suns generated
  • Over 2 billion zombie waves

  • Over 25 million hours played

The game will become available for other platforms later this year and beyond.
