Angry Birds Coming to Facebook on Valentine’s Day

The name Angry Birds won’t be new for you as this is one of the most popular games played by massive number of people all across the world on several gaming platforms. What if you have this popular game on your Facebook? Yes, the game is on its way to its launch on the largest social networking site on February 14.

Rovio is the company behind this popular game. It has released a teaser video on YouTube which gives us several hints that the game designed for Facebook won’t be exactly same to its mobile equivalent. The CEO of Rovio, Mikeal Hed said that the game will be launched with an entirely new theme and features. Also, the game will put more emphasis on the hapless pigs.

The video clearly shows that the company has managed to keep a viral sensation of the game alive in this version as well – flinging birds across the screen to knock out pigs and build high scores. Being designed for the social network, you can expect to have social posts and friend challenges to play a role, however, Rovio has not yet disclosed about the collaborative features of the game.

We assume that launching a game on Valentine’s Day won’t seem a good idea, but with a repo Rovio enjoying with its Angry Birds, it can opt for anything. Angry Birds along with its spin-offs have been downloaded over 500 million times, encouraging CTO of Rovio, Peter Vesterbacka, to claim that company was worth over $1.2 billion.

Unsurprisingly, the game has been developed for nearly every major mobile platform or device, but it is the first instance of game coming to a browser on the social network. The company is trying to open more doors to expand its operations. Open new doors for its game will help raising its profits for sure.

Let’s see whether the game will show a similar sort of popularity on the social network as it has shown on a number of mobile platforms.
