Yesterday we told you about a brewing drama regarding Plants vs Zombies 2. The sequel was released for iOS devices back in August, but an Android version is not here yet. Apple was alleged to have given EA “a truckload of money” to hold off on releasing Plants vs Zombies 2 for Android. Now we have a response from Electronic Arts.
In an official statement, the company says that no money was exchanged between Apple and EA for this purpose. It all started when head of EA Labels Frank Gibeau was rumored to have said in an internal meeting that Apple paid a “truckload” of money, but Apple has denied this.
EA claims that the comment from an internal meeting was “taken out of context,” which to be fair, does happen. They added that “reports of a paid relationship between Apple and EA are factually inaccurate.” As we said yesterday it was likely in reference to a marketing agreement that allowed Apple to get the game first, while Android had to wait.
