Rovio may reverse its decision to remove Angry Birds from Google Play store
The Finnish game developer Rovio Entertainment Oy is best known for the global phenomenon Angry Birds, a casual puzzle game that became an international media franchise. The company announced last week that it would be removing the original Angry Birds game from the Google Play Store, but it appears that Rovio may have had a change of heart.
Angry Birds has been downloaded over four billion times since it was first released in 2009, making it one of the most successful mobile games of all time. However, the game was recently delisted from the Google Play Store, with Rovio citing the need to focus on its newer titles.
Despite the removal of the original game, Angry Birds remains popular, with Rovio’s current portfolio of games including Angry Birds 2, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Evolution. However, the decision to delist the original game was met with criticism from fans, many of whom have grown attached to the classic title.
It appears that Rovio may have had a change of heart, as the company announced on Twitter that it is “exploring ways” to bring the original Angry Birds back to the Google Play Store.
Although it is not yet clear how Rovio plans to bring the original Angry Birds game back to the Google Play Store, the company’s announcement has been met with positive reaction from fans. If Rovio is able to successfully reverse its decision, it would be a huge victory for fans of the classic game.
