Angry Birds: Sequel and console release confirmed by CEO

Smash hit smartphone game Angry Birds has recieved a double boost, as not only has the app been confirmed to have a sequel but also it has been confirmed by the CEO of games developer Rovio that the game is so big that it will be brought to the big games consoles.

Peter Vesterbacka has said that “the smartphone gaming platform is actually turning out to be the biggest and most played out there, so it’s starting to beat the traditional games on consoles and PCs.” It is common for a console game to be introduced on to phones but in this very rare case a mobile game was been brought to consoles, due to Angry Birds huge success. Look out for Angry Birds on your PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii soon.

BBC Radio 1s Newsbeat reports that Angry Birds has been downloaded 36 million times by people using Apple’s iPhone and the Google Android operating system. This success has prompted a second version of Angry Birds which is expected out next year, although not too much is being given away. Vesterbacka went on to say: “It won’t be a sequel or a prequel but a different type of game featuring the same characters, let’s say that you will see a lot more of the pigs; the pigs will be a lot more active than just being slingshotted at by birds.”
