Rovlo is attempting to bring the passion for flinging birds back to life with Angry Birds 2, the sequel of the smash hit mobile game. We don’t have many details yet, but we can confirm that this sequel will come out the 30th of July, and will be introduced in a San Francisco event with more details about the gameplay and features.
“With 3 billion game downloads, millions of fans across the globe, multiple mashups and spin-offs, collaborations with A-list celebrities and much more, we’re really proud that Angry Birds is the mother of all mobile game apps. And now we’re proud to announce the mother of all sequels – Angry Birds 2!“, said Rovlo on their official website and blog.
For this fans, this represents a new reason to get excited, but for the gamer universe, this looks like more of the same. The last few entries in the series straight up looked like excuses despite the overall good quality – and despite all of this, Angry Birds remains a leader and one of the industry’s biggest names when it comes to mobile games.
The first Angry Birds title was released on December 2011, and ever since then they have been producing a huge ammount of spin-offs, some even with completely revamped and different gameplay that has nothing to do with flinging birds at all. Some of these titles include Angry Birds: Star Wars, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Friends, Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Transformers, Angry Birds Stella and even Bad Piggies, where the green pigs are the stars and main characters. And yet, it’s only now that we’re getting a numbered sequel. We will have to wait until the 30th of July, but so far it seems we will be getting new characters, more complex levels and renewed tools. Will they be able to recapture the magic?
