We originally speculated that this may actually be a hint to a Rio update (see below); however, today Rovio confirmed that it is actually a teaser for a new — long overdue — Seasons update!

Well, of course we have absolutely no clue what Rovio is teasing here — if anything! There’s two sides to every coin, so let’s take a shot in the dark:

Clearly the image references about Brazil on so many levels: The soccer balls (or futbols, if you want), the match on TV, the statues of Christ the Redeemer in the background. Of course, Angry Birds Rio is set in Rio de Janeiro. And the animation seems to emulate more of the AB Rio style than any other app. So maybe it’s a tease toward a forthcoming update to Angry Birds Rio?

On the other hand, it could very easily be a reference about the World Cup itself. After all, it’s one of the most popular events in the world. And next week’s Angry Birds Friends Tournament is called the “Bird Cup Championship”. So maybe it’s just another tease about that?

Nothing suggests this. It is very unlikely.

i agree with @sal9 there is no indication that this will be daily based, its almost sure this update is about the world cup soccer, and that is almost finished in 1,5 weeks. It would make more sense when they start at the same time as the event, but they didn’t.

Few of recent update in AB game are ‘contain’ bug, hope this long waiting is a stable release.

ABs being one of the games @pjng, the crash on opening v4.0.2 was never fixed, so I’m with you 100% on the hoping that this update will be stable, but nevertheless, I’ve already taken preventative measures by backing up ABs (v4.0.1) just to be on the safe side. :)

Very interesting levels. Definitely would like to see this released for PC, so larger screen would be beneficial, for aiming, and visuals. Still need to improve on my scores!! Looking forward to additional releases!
