  It's been a long time coming but finally, we have news concerning the next Plants vs Zombies game instalment.

  On February 5th, 2019 EA reported during its third quarter financial results that as well as the existing slate of games primed for 2019, it also has plans for two more.

  This includes a new?Need for Speed and a new?Plants vs. Zombies game.

  ”Looking forward, we're delighted to launch Anthem, our new IP, to grow Apex Legends and related Titanfall experiences, to deliver new Plants vs. Zombies and Need for Speed titles, and to add Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to our sports titles in the fall,” said COO and CFO Blake Jorgensen, in the announcement.

  Following on from the earnings call, the company later confirmed that this new?PvZ game is indeed a new shooter. The official Garden Warfare game account later tweeted?that it's coming for PC and consoles.

  So that pretty much confirms it's a new?Garden Warfare title.

  We imagine that next we'll hear about the game will be at E3 2019.

  Plants vs. Zombies has been a surprise shooter hit for EA so it stands to reason that the family-friendly shooter will return for a third outing in the future.

  Officially speaking,?the only thing EA has said about the game comes from an?EA?forum post?that said: “no announcement regarding [Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3] has been made at this time.”

  But, unofficially, back in March Reddit users noticed that the description for?Amazon UK's listing?of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Volume 2 says the upcoming comic book will connect Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3.

  Here's the official description: “Paul Tobin returns to write the official comic book bridge between video games PvZ: GW2 and PvZ: GW3 with Tim Lattie returning to deliver artwork.”

  For the purpose of this?Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 3 guide, we'll cover everything you need to know about the upcoming?EA and PopCap shooter.

  Between now and the release (presumably) next year, we'll continually update this page with all the latest news and information you need as it's revealed.

  For now, though, here's everything we know about the game so far.

  Developer: PopCap GamesPublisher:?Electronic ArtsPlatforms: Likely for PS4, Xbox One?and?PC. Likely also Xbox One X/PS4 Pro EnhancedGenre: Third-person shooter/tower defence

  The game, as far as the comic book leak so far has revealed, will be a follow-up to 2016's third-person shooter video game Garden Warfare 2.

  If it's anything like its predecessor, it will rely?largely on the same sort of gameplay: class-based combat set in the Plants Vs Zombies world, with a? variety of different modes from both perspectives.

  The previous game introduced 8 additional classes, so we'll likely see this game add new units and modes, too.

  An open beta testing for Garden Warfare 2 was held from January 14, 2016 to January 18, 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last time… could we see EA mimic the original game's schedule here with an open beta this coming January

  Before E3 2018 it was assumed that?EA would announce the game with a view to trying to push the game out before 2019.

  However, with no announcement made, it's possible that EA could be looking to shift the release to 2019 when it's less crowded by fellow shooter releases.

  It will also be?interesting to see whether EA has gone in on the Battle Royale hype with this game too – after all, it's the perfect setting for such a game.

  And with Battlefield V also releasing a Battle Royale mode, EA will certainly have a lot more experience with the genre before Garden Warfare 3 is released.

  In a recent interview?EA Motive studio head Jade Raymond told Edge magazine (Via, Xbox Achievements) it was stated that the developer's Vancouver studio is currently at work on a Plants vs. Zombies project – but not necessarily Garden Warfare 3.

  ”Conventional wisdom would suggest that a new, high-profile studio like Motive might be drafted in for a Garden Warfare 2 sequel, possibly alongside PopCap Games,” wrote Xbox Achievements Richard Walker.

  For now, we'll need to wait to find out more.
