Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville trailer seems to have leaked

What you need to know

  • Recently, EA said that a new Plants vs. Zombies game was on the way.
  • A closed beta has been going on for a while called Codename Picnic.
  • The game may not be called Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3, but Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.

A few weeks ago, EA said that new Need for Speed and Plants vs. Zombies games were launching soon. Since then, there have been closed beta tests for a new Plants vs. Zombies title, but we didn't know what it was. Today, a trailer for Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville appeared online. While this could be an elaborate hoax, the footage appears to be genuine because our sources were able to verify parts of it. Some of the footage appears to be from the closed beta test which was called Codename Picnic.

Instead of being called Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3, it looks like the next third-person shooter set in the bizarre universe is called Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. Hopefully, it's not just a name change and there are other activities instead of simply battling plants or zombies in closed arenas. Maybe we'll see a larger open-world environment this time around. However, only time will tell. It looks like this trailer was meant for Gamescom 2019.
