EA Finally Acquire Complete Control of PopCap

The developer behind Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, Zuma, and Peggle is now a part of the profit-focused publisher EA.

While there was no reason for the deal not to go through, as of today, PopCap is officially a part of EA. All Things D confirmed that the deal closed for the expected $750 million dollars.

PopCap representative (and former EA employee) Jeff Green shared his thoughts on the merger via Twitter.

Now that the deal has closed today and I'm officially a part of EA again, let me just take stand right here and say: Man, I love EA!

While no immediate changes are expected for the lucrative developer of Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, and Peggle, we'll be keeping our eye on the monolithic publisher.
