Angry Birds Facebook App Coming Soon

The expansion of the Angry Birds franchise continues as Rovio sets its sights on Facebook. Here is an excerpt from a longer article on Develop-Online.net (click for full article):

On Facebook, “there will be completely new aspects to it that just haven’t been experienced in any other platform,” said studio boss Mikael Hed, who confirms that due to the social site’s ‘collaborative nature’, “the pigs will have a more prominent role”.

Meanwhile, Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio’s ‘might eagle’ (business development) in the piece confirms that other spin-offs could be in the driving and sports genres, moving away from the puzzle-strategy 2D game’s origins.

I don’t know how this will play out, but regardless, it will be interesting. What are your thoughts? Will this be the next big thing or is it too much of a good thing? It will be interesting to see how they utilize–and possibly incorporate–the social graph.

Thanks to @RLZIII for tipping us off to this in our forum.

    With update 1.5.3 (which hit the App Store few hours back) the ‘Coming Soon’ page on Original Angry Birds is gone and is now replaced with 15 new levels of World 14 in the Episode Ham ‘Em High, 3 Bonus levels and 2 Golden Eggs!

    They previously said May, but there is no concrete date. The Rio update should also be out mid to late May.
