In either the greatest news or worst news to ever make waves, Flappy Bird is officially coming back to Android. According to a CNBC reporter that spoke with Dong Nguyen, the creator of Flappy Bird, the game is set for re-release onto Android this August, complete with new features.
After being removed from all markets back in February, the reason being the developer stated it was “too addictive,” countless clones of the game hit Google Play; many of them not being nearly as polished as the original. Dong stated that the game had received 50 million downloads in its short time on Android and iOS.
According to CNBC, the game will bring new features, which include a multiplayer mode. How exactly that will work, we don’t know, but it could be a race-like feature. For example, you could have two birds going head-to-head through the pipes or something along those lines.
Regardless of what the new features will be, we know millions of people will be both ecstatic and disgusted once it arrives.
