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.
