Anyone excited for the July 18 launch of Plants vs. Zombies 2 should prepare to be disappointed; it's been delayed. It feels like we've been waiting an eternity already for it, but without explaining why, Popcap took to Twitter to break the bad news:

Plants vs. Zombies 2, originally slated for a July 18th release, will now be released later in the summer. Stay tuned for more details."

A bitter blow, not made any easier having built up our excitement for the game after seeing it in action recently at E3. "Later in the summer" is distinctly vague, so we're back to not really knowing when it will land. Disappointing, for sure. Who else was looking forward to this one?
