PopCap Promises Plants Vs Zombies, Peggle for Android in Early 2011

PopCap, the creators of ultra-popular games such as Zuma and little series called Bejewled, have promised Android users that they will finally deliver Plants Versus Zombies and Peggle in early 2011.  Great news for casual gaming fans around the world!  The guys at PocketGamer were able to catch up with the developers and ask them why they decided to release Windows Phone 7 versions of their games ahead of our beloved Android.  Turns out, they are not in a hurry because they like to polish their games up a bit.  Oh, there’s also that touchy subject of fragmentation legacy devices.

Regardless of how much attention a new device gets, we won’t consciously put a game out knowing it’s not as good as it can be. We don’t aspire to be trendy; sometimes we’re not first to a particular platform but we do value being the most polished…What PopCap concentrates on is staying true to our core business of games for everyone – and that means having our games on as many devices as possible, and in as many places as there are people to play them…As Android has a bigger device range, we are taking a little longer to bring the best game experience to the maximum number of Android devices when we launch.

Who can blame ‘em?  Besides, early 2011 is but a few weeks away.  Right PopCap?  Riiiiiight?
