It’s gonna take PopCap a bit longer to grow this garden. The developer revealed today that it is delaying its anticipated Plants vs. Zombies 2 until “later in the summer.”

PopCap previously promised to release the title for iOS devices on July 18. That date is out, but the game will still launch on Apple devices first, according to PopCap.

Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense-style game that has a group of plants facing off against hordes of the undead. Gamers go through levels and place the vegetation in an attempt to knock the heads off the zombies before they reach the player’s house.

PopCap has recently started expanding on the Plants vs. Zombies series. It introduced a social-focused take on the series for Facebook called Plants vs. Zombies Adventures in May.
