We have quite the juicy rumor today, that Apple paid EA a large sum of money to delay its huge title, Plants vs. Zombies 2, on Android. Of course, Apple is denying any and all comments regarding the deal.

But, we have Frank Gibeau, head of EA Labels, stating that "Apple gave us a truckload of money to delay the Android version [of Plants vs Zombies 2]." The quote cam from an internal town hall meeting held at EA earlier today. We don't know how much money represents a "truckload" but it would have to be several million at least.

 

Considering that Plants vs. Zombies 2 has already launched on Android in China, and is outselling the iOS version 6-1, this could be a very big reason why. One of the biggest games on mobile, selling six times better on Android, is a very big reason for Apple to enjoy the exclusivity of it. Apple has flatly denied all claims, saying that no money has changed hands regarding the PvZ 2 title.
