Bejeweled 3 for iPhone and iPad Coming, Eventually

If you're a loyal Bejeweled fan (dare we say "addicted"), then you must be happy to know that, eventually, Bejeweled 3 will "probably" come to the iPhone and iPad. Why the "eventually" and "probably"? The game, developed by PopCap Games, was released as a digital download for Windows and Mac last December and, especially on the Mac side of things, several gamers decided to put the download on hold, waiting for a mobile iOS counterpart. Good news is, hope isn't lost as PopCap Games' Garth Chouteau hints at the porting in a recent interview with Pocketful of Megabytes, which you can read here.

When asked about an iOS version, Chouteau says:

As mentioned above, we’re traditionally somewhat slow to adapt our games to other platforms after launching them on PC/Mac… Bejeweled 3 for iPhone/iPad is probably something we’ll do…eventually…!

Bejeweled 3 for iOS, if priced correctly and made universal in the App Store, would undoubtedly jump the charts in a matter of a few days. The game is popular, people want to play, PopCap wants as many downloads as possible -- sounds like a plan, right? Yes, but we have to wait. Eventually, it will come. Hopefully sooner than later.
