Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably played one of the many iterations of Rovio’s extremely popular Angry Birds games. The Finnish company has been very successful marketing this game on all platforms, and merchandising the heck out of the game’s lovable birds and pigs. They’ve been in movie talks and even teamed up with Korean police to help combat bullying. These little guys are literally everywhere… except, apparently, in Rovio’s next game.
In a recent interview, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed spilled the beans that they are working on a new game that is not an Angry Birds spinoff, and it will be out “in a couple of months”. That’s pretty much all he said about it, so no further details are known at this time.
Let’s hope the new game’s characters are as lovable and merchandisable as these birds are. I’d expect nothing less from Rovio.
