Plants Vs. Zombies 2 Already Beat The Original’s Lifetime Downloads

You’re in good company if you’ve been playing Plants vs. Zombies 2 for the last couple of weeks. In fact, your company is nearly 25 million strong, according to figures published yesterday by PopCap.

That’s how many people have downloaded the sequel since its release earlier this month, and according to the developer that’s more downloads than the original Plants vs. Zombies got during its entire lifespan. That may seem hard to believe, but the switch to free-to-play must have really paid off.

In addition so far players have logged 81 million hours with PvZ 2, generating 31 billion suns, defeating 5.4 billion waves of zombies, and planting 10 billion plants. But the real question is: how many keys have you people found? Because I’m having rotten luck with those things.

Head over to PopCap’s blog to see the infographic in full.


  • Imagine how many more they’ll get if they release for Android, since you know, Apple’s market share is now something like 13%

  • I wonder if they’ve made more or less money than the first?

    As for keys, I have a total of 104 spare along with 89 stars…

  • Keys only seem rare when you need them. I have dozens of useless keys now.

    Also, hurry up with the Far Future update, Pop Cap! I’ve smashed all the other levels.

  • not hard to get more downloads when its free. i really do hate the microtransactions. id happily pay $5, even $10 to get the game with everything. even though you can unlock most things by playing the game, its ridiculous how 1 new plant can cost like $5.
