On July 12, 2012, PopCap Games was acquired by EA Games and had become a subsidiary of it. EA Games has become the publisher of all PopCap games, including Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
Origin is Electronic Arts' platform for distributing games. Both Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare can be bought using this service. In May 2014, the Game of the Year edition of Plants vs. Zombies was available for free as part of Origin's "On the House" promotion.
