Remember Angry Birds? The game, which was massively popular before the likes of Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans replaced it (and its various spin-offs). The addictive game will now make a comeback in the form a sequel. Rovio, the publisher behind Angry Birds, confirmed that a sequel named Angry Birds 2 will be released on July 30. The news is a bit surprising since the game has lived on in the form of various spin-offs such as Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars.
At this point, Rovio has revealed next to nothing about the upcoming game. [...]
Angry Birds creator Rovio has a new game in the works, which is teased on a newly released website that features a bird dashing down a pathway. “Something NEW is coming!” reads the site, and in a blog post, Rovio says the game is unlike its standard Angry Birds titles.
“Those birds and piggies are getting ready for their most thrilling and action-packed game yet,” explains a post on Rovio’s blog.
“All your favorite characters are returning for a brand new title that will bring you closer to Piggy Island than ever before. It’s Angry Birds, but not as you know it!”
Angry Birds is flapping its wings to a galaxy far, far away next month. Rovio today announced a partnership with Lucasfilm Ltd. for Angry Birds Star Wars, a new entry in the series hitting iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows 8, and Windows Phone on November 8.
According to the game’s announcement, Angry Birds Star Wars will tap into the science fiction franchise’s characters and settings, including the desert world of Tatooine and the supermassive Death Star ship.

Rovio is back to prove they can move beyond Angry Birds and have released “Bad Piggies.” This science-based game is now from the pigs point of view and Rovio states you can create the “ultimate flying/crawling/rolling/spinning/crashing device and pilot the pigs safely to the eggs!” Sound fun? There’s 60 levels and it’s now available free for Android devices, or $0.99 for iOS users. Windows Phone users will be available to download this “soon,” but no word on when/if the game will be coming to BlackBerry devices.

For those of you who own a Windows Phone 7 Smart-phone, there’s some good news! You can now download Angry Birds from the Marketplace onto your phone. The first time we heard that this game was coming to the platform was in October 2010, even before the mobile OS was launched. A few days before its launch, Microsoft included an image which hinted at the game being a part of the platform. However, Rovio, the company behind the physics game, had not developed a version for the platform.
Microsot and Rovio later made up and the software giant hinted at a 2011 release. The game was scheduled for mid May and then [...]

But, for a similar trend to continue for so long is really applaudable.
Rovio’s super hit angry birds is available in various versions like Seasons, Standard and Rio. Angry birds is also the most cross platform game, available on iOS / Android / Mac / WebOS and soon on Windows Phone 7 Devices.
