Rovio Teases Big New Angry Birds Adventure with New Birds

Rovio sent a very simply tweet this morning with the hashtag #newangrybirds. In typical Rovio fashion, the tweet has raised more questions than it has provided answers. Note, new info has come out, so please see below.

What could this possibly mean?! Here’s some of the earliest speculation:

  • I think it could be a Chuck-specific episode to the original Angry Birds, similar to Red’s Mighty Feathers and Short Fuse.
  • @Sal9 first reaction was that it could be a whole new app.

    OMG, a new AB!

  • @BirdLeader thought it looks an awful lot like Stella (see image below).

    That looks like Stella to me, but the #hashtag is definitely interesting. GDC (Game Developers Conference) is coming up in March, so it would be a great time to release a significant update. Maybe a whole new game or a Stella specific episode.

  • @Miezko thought the image style looks similar to the New Tricks video from New Year’s.

    I think it has something to do with the Pink Bird (Fantasy like) Image from the 2014 Trailer

All very plausible, but what do YOU think? Let us know and maybe we’ll sleuth out the truth ahead of Rovio’s less-cryptic announcement!

Updated 9:40 am PST! Well, that was fast. On the heels of Rovio’s first tweet (above), they have just now tweeted:

So it definitely looks like we’re in for a new game, or a massive update.

I,personally,think that it is Angry Birds 2. I mean, why wouldn’t they? There’s Plants VS zombies 2, Talking Tom 2,Cut the rope 2,even ABSW 2! Nearly every good app has a sequel, and fans have been requesting an Angry Birds 2…

It might be Rio 2 as most people are saying.

I’m not sure I’m ready for a new game. I prefer getting updates for the ones we have more often.

I don’t think its Rio 2.I have been studying the characters in the movie comparing to the new ones here.

The pink one is Stella, those other birds are from New Bird City, an upcoming episode of Angry Toons will make everything clear to you.

I think of two things

1- The eggs have hatched and and the chicks will have new powers in Angry Birds 2. I think the yellow bird is a Mighty Eaglet!

2- It is a merge of all released angry birds games.

I definitely think this is related to the 2014 video. It might be a Stella-specific episode (like Red and Bomb).

Does anyone play Words with Friends? There was an ad for Rio on there tonight, saying something about “midnight”. Unfortunately, my knee-jerk reaction to their ads is to skip over them, so I had passed it by before I realized what it was!
