EA Denies Receiving Truckload Of Money From Apple

Plants vs Zombies, an Electronic Arts title, is a popular mobile game. The sequel was released for iOS devices back in August, an Android version is yet to be released. Earlier today we reported that Apple was alleged to have given EA “a truckload of money” to hold off on releasing Plants vs Zombies 2 for Android. Electronic Arts, in an official statement, says that no money was exchanged between Apple and EA for this purpose.

Head of EA Labels Frank Gibeau is rumored to have said in an internal meeting that Apple paid a “truckload” of money, however Cupertino has flat out denied any involvement in this matter. EA claims that the comment from an internal meeting has been “taken out of context,” adding that “reports of a paid relationship between Apple and EA are factually inaccurate.” Now its not unusual for some games to be exclusive to a particular platform of device, marketing agreements which allow this are routinely made. So for all we know, Apple and EA might just have entered into a marketing agreement, though none is confirming if this is indeed true. So even if you don’t believe the quote was taken out of context, it has already been rumored today that Plants vs Zombies 2 for Android might be released next month.
