Trending: Amazon and Seattle’s NBA dreams: Steve Ballmer on the city’s prospects for bringing back the Sonics

plantsvszombies2For Android owners who have been chomping at the bit to play Plants vs. Zombies 2, there’s good news to report today. Sources tell Polygon that PopCap’s massively-popular game will launch on Android devices in October.

The title has been available in Apple’s App Store a little over one month now and hit 25 million downloads in about two weeks after launch.

Interestingly, Giant Bomb reported today that Apple apparently paid PopCap parent company Electronic Arts a “truckload of money” to delay the Android launch of of PvZ 2. The comments were made by EA Labels head Frank Gibeau at an internal town hall meeting for EA. Apple later denied the report.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 came out on Android in China earlier this month.
