Plants Vs Zombies 2 Guaranteed To Ship In Next Decade

Just got done with an entertaining meeting with some of the top people behind Plants Vs Zombies, Bejeweled and Zuma. They don't talk much about future plans, but made Kotaku readers one guarantee.

"I promise your readers there will be a Plants Vs Zombies 2 in the next one to 10 years," Popcap co-founder John Vechey told me.

Kind of a useless prediction, we agreed, but at least he confirmed that it won't be out in the coming year. A sequel, though, is guaranteed. This from a man, Vechey, who apparently keeps his word. He and a couple of colleagues told me that he occasionally challenges people at his company to stop smoking. He challenged one guy to quit and said he'd give him a flat-screen TV if he did. The guy quit for a year and got the TV.

Possibly breaching journalism ethics rules I asked if all of Kotaku's readership could get a free TV each if PvZ2 doesn't ship in the decade. He wouldn't make that promise, but said I would get one if the sequel failed to come out.

The most recent Plants Vs Zombies shipped for iPad last weekend.


    HAHAHAHAAHAHA! you guys are hilarious.

    Hey, at least he didn't say next 2 decades. Ah, should've challenged the guy to quit forever, now that I would've been impressed with.

      well if he hadnt smoked in a year the addictions gone so really a year is the equivilant of forever

      if he started the next day well thats his choice although i doubt he would have had the will power purely for a TV

    Aww... I wanted a TV...

    Either way, he sounds like a really nice guy. Down to Earth, and honest. So, when he says we're getting a sequel to the game where my botany skills meet my zombie-killer skills, I believe him.

    Oh well, we'll all just have to come around and watch it then.
