PC Versions of Angry Birds Apps Officially Discontinued

King Pig recommends Xanax for Angry Birds

We are sad to say that the Angry Birds apps on PC have been officially discontinued. This is, of course, a rather upsetting piece of news that we feel obligated to inform our users about. While the official word comes directly from Rovio’s FAQ, this conversation was originally spurred by some users in a forum thread here on Nest. In particular, we’d like to thank @mixx for really getting the ball rolling in terms of credible information, though unfortunately it was a ball rolling downhill in terms of the storyline.

Here’s the snippet from Rovio’s FAQ (at the time of writing):

Why have PC games been discontinued? Will they receive further updates?

We have decided to discontinue development on PC games to focus on providing a better experience for these games on mobile devices. This change takes effect on November 13th, 2014. Starting from this date, PC games will no longer be available for purchase or download. Additionally, these games will no longer receive updates. To play the most recent versions of the games, please search for the mobile versions of the games on the app marketplace associated with your mobile device.

Again, we understand this is disappointing, but please don’t take this out on us. It was not our decision. Please read on, as we think there are viable options to consider:

  • All is not lost! Retrieving your data files on PC/Mac is actually quite simple. Transferring these data files to a mobile device (though not ideal) may keep your progress intact, allowing you to pick up where you left off! I recommend checking our Complete Backup / Transfer Guide.
  • In fact, you can start off ahead of where you left off! PC’s last update was on September 22nd, and a few apps have seen updates since then. And don’t forget about On Finn Ice, which is coming very soon on Angry Birds Seasons!
  • Mac: Also discontinued.
  • We have not yet received any official word about Steam support.

    This was such a joy for me to play and you all took it away! You could find a way to bring it back if you really wanted too. :( :( :(

    I’ve paid for these games on the PC and now can’t reinstall them on my system. Sure I could put them on my iPhone but 1-I don’t want the have to buy them again and 2-I can’t play any game on the small screens :-(

    In v7.8.6 (latest), I get messages that I received a “New Sticker”, but I don’t get one. This has happened since the upgrade.

    does anyone know where I can find the final setup.exe for the updates for each title on the net? I have legal keys for all the games and I just reinstalled PC starwars from CD rom and the key worked still. But it’s 1.0. I need the final update for starwars, angry birds, angry birds seasons, and angry birds space. I might get rio and starwars 2 off amazon if I can find the updates

    This is crazy… I got my first PC (a laptop) for my birthday (Nov. 23) in 2014, just a day before this post was made! I can even remember I downloaded AB Classic right after I unpacked the laptop, without even knowing about this.

    Don’t worry, you can still buy them on disc at amazon.

    Yeah. The advantage of the physical format, it can’t be discontinued!
