'PvZ: Garden Warfare' producer talks parodying 'Call of Duty' and other games

Like the other Plants Vs Zombies games, Garden Warfare for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 has its own brand of PopCap Games humor. Previous titles weren't afraid to poke fun at zombie tropes or certain famous musicians (until the lawyers stepped in at least) but PopCap sets its sights on other shooters with its newest iteration of the franchise.

"We do have an online co-op mode that we've called it Garden Ops," PopCap Games Producer Brian Lindley admitted to Examiner. "So if you've played much Call of Duty in recent years that might ring a bell."

"Beyond that, the majority of that stuff is obviously the names of a fanatic parody and other things," he continued. "But we’re not just about poking fun at Call of Duty, we also poke fun at other shooters as much as we can. I think you’ve seen a lot of that in our trailers and some other things that we've released. We’re not about taking ourselves too serious at all (laughs)."

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is due out Feb. 18 for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
