Rovio Mobile released Angry Birds for the first time on December 10, 2009. Since then, it has sold over 12 million copies in the App Store alone, and has also been reproduced for various other platforms. The game is also the No. 1 paid app in 67 countries, and is one of the most successful game franchises of all-time. At the recent Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, Rovio has announced a surprise for Angry Birds fans this Halloween. An upcoming update to Angry Birds Seasons will introduce a brand-new bird, which reportedly looks like a yellow duck.
Citing from the source:
Andrew Stalbow of Rovio, after revealing some stats on the success of Angry Birds at the Web 2.0 Summit, let drop that a new bird is coming in the October update of Angry Bird Seasons.
Stalbow did not say what the bird would be, just that the game has been providing hints to users in recent updates and ancillary products. A slide he displayed of the Mighty Eagle bird showed a small, duckling-like yellow bird in the corner, which may be the new bird.
Angry Birds and its spinoffs have been downloaded over 400 million times. The company boasts 130 million monthly users, and 30 million play the game each day. The game’s users play 300 million minutes every day. Over 10 million Angry Birds toys have been sold, including plush dolls. Andrew Stalbow of Rovio said: “We have great reach!“.
