Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3 seems to be a real thing

About a year ago, rumours began to circulate that Electronic Arts was working on a new Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare game. They died down after a while, though, and little else was said about the series. Until now, at least.

It seems that EA is inviting people to playtest something they’ve code named ‘Picnic,’ which is described as being a ‘new PVZ shooter.’

“You are invited to participate in the new PvZ shooter (codename Picnic) playtest on Xbox One or PS4,” reads the email, which was sent out to members of EA’s playtesting program. “Made by the team that created PvZ: Garden Warfare, the Picnic closed alpha will give players a first glimpse into the new game.”

With Plants vs. Zombies 3 on the horizon, it makes sense for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3 to be in development. After all, it’s been some time since the last game was released.
