Germany rates Plants vs. Zombies, out later this year

Plants vs. Zombies is coming to Xbox Live Arcade, this we know. When however is a different story; as PopCap’s Garth Chouteau delivered the news roughly a year ago, a release date or window wasn’t even hinted at.

The German USK ratings board has now rated the game though, suggesting it may be close to release. But, PopCap itself is quick to rain on the parade.

While confirming that an XBLA version is still very much intended, the company says not to expect an announcement any time soon. This month’s E3 would be a nice place to confirm a release date but they don’t have much of a presence nor will they be making any announcements there, the company says.

It’s intended for this year though.
