Plant war never changes.

Publisher Electronic Arts revealed today that its upcoming team-based shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will come out on February 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This is a bit earlier than the spring launch originally announced by the company.

Garden Warfare is a spinoff of the Plants vs. Zombies tower defense series, which is a relatively simple game compared to the shooter-based action of Garden Warfare. The first Garden Warfare came out in 2014.

The sequel will be an important part of EA’s 2016, especially with an early release date in the year. It could help the publisher build momentum into another year of revenue growth.
