Angry Birds Seasons “Haunted Hogs” Update Coming Soon!

You’ve heard it here first! I think we can put the speculation to rest. In keeping with tradition, Angry Birds Seasons will receive its third annual Halloween update. And not only do we know that the update is coming, but we are relatively sure it will be called, “Haunted Hogs”. This could obviously change, but only time will tell.

Now, details are very very sparse at the moment, but we are willing to speculate about a few things. Our disclaimer here is that absolutely nothing is confirmed or official, but since these questions will likely be asked by fans, we will express our opinions as “answers”.

  • We believe this update will be v3.0.0 of Seasons, and start a new group called “Seasons 2013″. Why? Trick or Treat (originally, “Angry Birds Halloween”) was v1.0.0 and the first episode of the 2011 group, and Ham’o’ween was v2.0.0 and the first episode of the 2012 group.
  • If we had to guess, we think it will be released this coming Saturday, October 20th, 2012. Why? Angry Birds Halloween was released this day, as was Ham’o’ween. It’s not your typical Thursday update, but rather it’s an anniversary release.
  • It will likely contain 30 levels. Why? This was from the Game Center screenshot, which showed “test scores” upwards of 3.3M points. This is consistent with, say, Summer Pignic and Ham’o’ween.
  • More than likely there will be at least two Golden Eggs, one hidden, and one for 3-starring all levels.

The last thing we will say — besides “WE CAN’T WAIT!!!” — is that you should check out our awesome Angry Birds Halloween post. It contains awesome activities, downloadable pumpkin carving templates (adult and kid friendly), info on Rovio’s official Halloween contest, and more.

Looking foward and hope it will be out before next Thursday.
Game Center icon for Angry Birds Seasons is still same as for Back to School update. Why? Can somebody please answer? I also have ABS HD version.

I don’t understand your question. Basically everyone will have the BTS Icon.

You answered this for me once, IIRC. I think @Cosmo2503 is asking why his icon shows BTS when the icon in the main picture for this article shows Halloween 2013. I think your answer was that only developers have the new Game Center icon (or something like that).

I have Seasons HD and still see the BTS icon as well.

Aha, quite right. This image is from a “Sandboxed” GameCenter account. “Sandbox” is basically developer-mode for GameCenter.

I wish that in this update,they will change the pig’s sprites to the newer brighter green ones,anyone agree? ;)

Yep, and I wish that the pigs’ sprites will be the Chrome-sprites.

Yeah, changing the birds and pigs to their new sprites would be nice, but I think they will keep the classic sprites for about and abseasons

How sad the world will be if they keep the ugly classic sprites.

I’d really like it if they updated the sprites, I don’t get why the Chrome pigs are in cutscenes and most level select screens but still haven’t been actually added in-game yet.

Many of these updates are from “Traditions”. We all have a tradition in our families during holidays. Has anyone gotten bored with recognizing birthdays or having eggnog? Not me. There are hundreds of fun worldwide holidays and seasons out there….solstice, equinox, octoberfest. Piglantis wasn’t a season but very cool to play. I look forward to hearing about these new things Rovio has in store for us. Excellent job Angry Birds Nest Crew! Your walkthroughs, news, updates are a class act. Keep them coming. Rovio I hope you never stop updating Seasons, Original, Space, Rio, Bad Piggies and adding new themes with Star Wars etc. Now if I could get a Buffalo Bills update……I am ready and waiting.

Piglantis WAS a season. Summer?

I think Piglantis might’ve been a test for an upcoming release….Angry Birds Aqua….in the same fashion as Angry Birds Space.

By Junior13 (@wisarun)

I wonder if the update today come here later or not because I’m in a different country then England. Do I need to update a bit later like not England but another country is 6 hours ahead now it’s 10:05 so do I had to wait tommorow for this update or update which do you think is a good idea?

I mean on the second reason do I had to update a bit later on like at nighttime?

Rank: Sling God with 27775 points

Updates release pretty much simultaneously worldwide for a given App Store.

Please note that it’s not guaranteed to arrive on the 20th. It’s just our guess.

So like they release in order of country’s

On iPhone for example, the update will land in the US, England, Australia, etc. usually simultaneously or within a few minutes.

I’m just saying this because it would be awesome and I know it will never happen but I wish that they would do a Waitangi Day episode because you could have like big Maori tikis and stuff like that. But no one every thinks of New Zealand and they would do a American themed episode before they would think of anyone else.

Ps I know that know one on ABN will know what holiday that I am talking about

In truth, I don’t really think it’ll matter much in the long run to most of us AB fanatics. After all, I had absolutely no idea what a mooncake was, or what the festival was all about when that update hit the scene, but those levels played just fine!

Not sure, personally I think it will happen on Thursday/Friday like the majority of updates (so just under a week). But I hope I am wrong and it happens sooner :P

Why every site says that the updates ”trick & Treat” and Hamoween is released on 21th oktober 2010 and 2011?

Rank: Out of this World with 2650 points
By Chucky (@chucky)

2 years on the same date could be purely a co-incidence. If it was 5-6 years worth all falling on the same date then we might have a little more proof to confirm it.

Oh and I was of the belief every site (well at least this one) is speculating on the 20th not 21st, meaning it should have dropped as it is the 20th at 8pm where I am, and they normally drop around the 6pm mark for me.

But again, it is speculation at this stage, nobody knows but I sure hope it is soon!!

yes i see now, androis was releasing it on the 21th, but i hope the update comes today

21st of October: release date of Trick or Treat (proof: iTunes metadata file on iOS app).

I agree. In the previous years, the 20th was not on a weekend. In this year I think it won’t come out on the 20th which is a Saturday.

Yeah I think we can safely rule out the 20th and 21st now, as it is past the usual drop time (6.00pm in Aus) on the 21st and still nothing. So now I think we are going to be looking at Thursday …. DOH!!!!

You rather might check the App Store tommorow because it takes time for all the country to have a update so, maybe tommorow.

Ham’o’ween came out on October 21, 2011. (According to the iOS App Store) so it must be coming out tomorrow, the 21

LOL! In Asia, it already is 21! AND NO UPDATE.

By Sopipas

Maybe tomorrow, if not Thursday. Tommroow my theory: it’s a pattern, trick or treat (ab seosons or ab holloween (3 names).)on the 20th, then according to AppStore, hamoween on 21st, now haunted hogs on the 23rd?
Otherwise it Thursday,

Thursday my theory: An update day

Most likely the 25th. The ABS Halloween update always landed on a Wednesday or a Thursday and most AB updates come out on Thursdays.

One update late last May/early June came on a Wednesday evening instead of the usual Thursday. I can’t remember which one it was though. So maybe we’ll be surprized by bedtime?

Just realized something: For Season’s 2011, there are 7 episodes total. For Season’s 2012, there are 6. Wouldn’t it make sense to add one more episode to 2012 instead of starting another year? You know, to balance the scale. And don’t say that they’ll add the Halloween episode to 2012, because it also doesn’t make sense to have 2 Halloweens in the same year. But either way i’ll be ready for this update. I could enjoy seeing Pink Bird in more levels, anyway.

This year, they have been releasing lots of new games and updates through the year. Angry birds Space, Bad Piggies, and soon Angry Bitds Star Wars. There is a lot of things going on. And 2 Halloween theme episodes in 1 year selection? Doesn’t seem right
