As Flappy Bird mania fades away, veteran Finnish game developers Rovio on Wednesday suggested that they would soon add another chapter to their own feathered franchise: Angry Birds.

Angry Birds


Rovio teased the new game on their Twitter account, promising a "big adventure" with a new cast of irate avians. It would be the tenth entry in the blockbuster physics-based series in which players use a slingshot to fling birds at elaborately-constructed castles erected by an opposition force composed of pigs.

Following the massive success of the original Angry Birds, the franchise has expanded with merchandise, theme parks, and even Hollywood tie-ups. Most recently, Rovio unleashed Angry Birds Go, a Mario Kart-like downhill racer set in a new three-dimensional world.

The studio gave no further details of what to expect and did not hint at a release date, only saying that the game would be "coming soon." Rovio also makes popular games Juice Cubes and Tiny Thief.

    In the early 2020s, there will be a book written on the rise and fall of this empire and how to avoid its business strategies.

    Unlike Angry Birds, Tiny Thief hasn't been updated with new levels in 8 months since the game initially debuted.

    Which is a shame because Tiny Thief was brilliant.

    I would love to see them do a version of Angry Birds using a similar game play to Siege Hero

    It's not easy making hit game after hit game especially when there's so much competition and the games are nothing more than for casual use. Rovio has gone up against companies like Disney and have done pretty well for themselves.
