Angry Birds Heading To WP7, 3D Version Coming Soon

Feb 16, 2011

Rovio, the company behind the popular Angry Birds game, has just confirmed that it is working on a Windows Phone 7 version. On top of that, they confirm plans to develop a 3D version for the slew of 3D devices on the way.

This announcement is interesting because just last fall, Rovio and Microsoft had a slight kerfuffle due to Microsoft’s unlawful use of an Angry Birds icon in WP7 advertising. The situation elicited a tweet from Rovio saying : “We have NOT committed to doing a Windows Phone 7 version. Microsoft put Angry Birds icon on their site without our permission.”

Now it appears that everything is patched up and Rovio head, Peter Vesterbecka confirms that the WP7 version of Angry Birds is in the works. He also confirms that they are working on a 3D version of the game but has not given a specific timeline for either version.
