UPDATE: An Apple spokesmen has stated that these reports are false, and that Apple has not payed EA to do this.
According to a new report, Apple has apparently paid EA to delay the release of the popular Plants vs. Zombies for Android.
This detail was revealed during an internal town hall meeting held earlier today for publisher Electronic Arts.
“Apple gave us a truckload of money to delay the Android version [of Plants vs Zombies 2],” said Frank Gibeau, head of EA Labels.
Apple and EA do have a good partnership, as in the last quarter, most of EA’s profits came directly from Apple’s App Store.
These new details also seem to confirm that Apple is acting more like a video game manufacturer and trying to gain exclusive rights on new games coming to mobile.
