Flappy Bird Soon to Fly Back Into the App Store

If you still care about Flappy Bird, its creator has confirmed it will return to the App Store sometime in the future, according to the developer’s response on Twitter, as noticed by Gawker:

A recent interview in Rolling Store had developer Dong Ngyuen reveal why he removed his game, as the fame and ‘pressure’ overwhelmed him. The game has surpassed 50 million downloads and was earning Nguyen $50,000 per day back in February.

Even with his game removed from the App Store, existing downloads still generated ads and revenue for Nguyen. I’m sure his bank account helped him have a change of heart.

Was this all a brilliant marketing move? We’ll never know…
