Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3 won't be at E3


The team is ‘hard at work’

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3 or whatever the next PvZ shooter ends up being named is skipping EA Play 2019, the company’s E3-adjacent reveal event that kicks off tomorrow morning.

Shaun Laker, the live producer on Garden Warfare 2, took to Twitter to set expectations.

While we won’t be at EA Play this year, the team is hard at work making our next PvZ Shooter great! In the meantime, look forward to a taco-filled Summer of #PvZGW2 events and weekly challenges starting July 16th.

It’s not the news I was hoping for, but I’m glad to hear a confirmation ahead of time. No need to wonder. That said, I can’t wait to see what approach the next Plants vs. Zombies shooter takes to stand out and reach the younger player base. We’re living in a post-Fortnite world. Things aren’t the same.

Another vaguely-discussed title, this year’s Need for Speed, is also sitting out EA Play 2019.
