Well, this is unexpected. Rumours are suggesting that the colourful and charming tower defence game Plants vs. Zombies could spawn a multiplayer shooter.
Citing a “Canadian industry source with ties to Electronic Arts,” Kotaku are reporting that PopCap is looking at making the title for consoles, “in the vein of Team Fortress 2.″
Backing up the frankly insane rumour is news that PopCap has set up a new team at EA Canada’s Burnaby office.
Apparently, the new team is mostly staffed by ex EA Black Box employees. They’ve been hiring for an animator with motion capture experience and a designer with multiplayer shooter experience.
It should be noted that according to the source, PopCap has not yet greenlit the project. But still. Wow.
