It has been announced that fans of the hugely successful Angry Birds game will another game to challenge/antagonize/frustrate/anger them next year when Angry Birds 2 will land on smartphones.
Rovio, creators of the avian-versus-swine game, has seen it downloaded 36million times since it was released less than a year ago. The game is available on the iPhone, Android-powered devices, Nokia and Palm phones as well as the iPad. It sees players attempting to fling a range of different multi-coloured birds (not to be confused with real angry birds) through the air to destroy buildings hiding the egg-stealing pigs. But, if an executive from Rovio can be believed, the next iteration of the game could see the pigs get their revenge.
Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, Rovio chief executive Peter Vesterbacka said: “"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." He would not confirm when the game would be released saying he hoped it would be sometime in 2011.
Not content with dominating the smartphone market and taking on the console big-boys, the Birds are looking at making Christmas their own too, with an Angry Birds Christmas-themed special on the cards for a release next month, following October's Halloween edition.
