Rumored Angry Birds Updates by Edition and Platform


Below is a list of confirmed and rumored Angry Birds updates that we’ve compiled from various sources, including our own News & Rumors forum (a big shout out to RLZIII, AMslimfordy and everyone else who chips in on that board).

Quick background, we decided to create this page because we are always getting asked questions like, “When is the next Angry Birds update?”, “When will Angry Birds Rio be out on PC?”, “When will the Mighty Eagle be available on Android?”, just to name a few.

This list may not be perfect, so if you see something we missed feel free to leave a comment or join the discussion in the News & Rumors forum.

You have no means of connecting to the internet or WiFi? Then it seems like you probably can’t get it. If you do check out the article here for details on the Mighty Eagle.

If your version is working fine, I think the .2 was just a bug fix.

You REALLY need to update this…many of the rumors have been shot down/already have happened.

Yes, true. This is an old page. Unfortunately, Rovio doesn’t provide much insight anymore, so there isn’t much we can add at this time.

The “before summer” things get me so prepped up…now, obviously that’s not happening.

By the way, Rovio posted on their Facebook and on their YouTube account that Angry birds has finally come to Roku 2, might want to add an article on that. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9Bi10PMnaY, http://www.facebook.com/angrybirds/posts/139302252819134 )

They also announced they are coming to the San Diego ComicCon 2011. Microsoft also released an Angry Birds theme (Windows 7 only). ( http://www.facebook.com/angrybirds/posts/251352131558700 , http://www.facebook.com/angrybirds/posts/116570381769517 )

Currently, the Mighty Eagle can only be purchased by iOS users (iPod / iPhone / iPad) by clicking the Eagle Eye icon in-game. You can read more about the Mighty Eagle in this post.

Where are all of the above things? The mighty eagle should have been in Rio and Seasons before summer. It is the middle of summer, and no mighty eagle. The sync was also planned to be released before summer. I just want to have my scores backed up just in case by rovio so I can stop worrying when I update my iPhone to the new iOS version. I had someone update their phone, and it crashed, so they lost all of their date. I really don’t have the time to really back up my phone by using those videos you posted up (nice work btw). I want rovio do to it.

As per the Mighty Eagle, my understanding for the delay is the “free” aspect. That is, Rovio indends for users to buy ME once and it will apply to all three apps. This is much easier said than done.

As per Sync, I think Rovio is due to release a beta this month from old Twitter posts.

This says that Rovio WANTED to make a one-time purchase for all 3 apps. Why didn’t they make it that way?

Rank: Sling God with 28450 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Because it’s actually against Apple’s (and theoretically any App Store’s) terms & conditions to do so.

Ok thanks

i have heard nothing back from rovio about this: why am i expected to pay for a game i bought already? whats the difference in the version i have and the one in the store? and why don’t we get ALL the versions that are available to everyone else?

Rank: Sling God with 28450 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

We need more details to be able to help you. What device? What app? What store? Etc.

By angrypsp

PS3/PSP playstation store, the only angry birds they have. I went ahead and bought the “newer” version the only things i see that is different is the opening went from 3 developers to 2, and a couple of the golden eggs are basically given to you. the frame freeze is still horrible.

Sorry we have no information about PSP. You will have to contact Rovio directly.
