Angry Birds Hits Half Billion Downloads

Rovio’s mega-popular Angry Birds is known to be a multi-million dollar grossing franchise – a popular mobile game that has already been ported to Apple, Android, PC and several other devices. The company reported that the game has been downloaded more than half a billion times, strengthening its stand as the world’s most popular and best-selling mobile game.

The Finnish gaming studio, Rovio in order to celebrate this important event has posted a video on their YouTube channel, detailing statistics to reveal the fact that how popular the game has become over the years. So far, Angry Birds gamers have played more than 200,000 years, with 300 million minutes of playing time on regular basis, reported Rovio.

In addition to this, until now 266 million levels of the game have been played, with 400 billion birds launched and over 44 billion Stars have been claimed.

Rovio intentions are to extend its presence all over the world. The opening of its offices in China is an obvious example of Rovio’s intentions where it is promoting unique and exclusive offerings to the Chinese market. We have also come to know that the company is intended to take its Angry Birds franchise to Hollywood and for this very purpose it has already hired former Marvel chairman David Maisel to make its new film. Rovio is also teaming with other retailers, such as Starbucks to reward gamers in stores.

Rovio is aiming to broaden its offerings into merchandise sales and new game releases. Rovio is growing quickly and we assume the figures will further increase in the coming as the company expands its operations to other countries.
