After an erroneous report on Bloomberg news that had Peter Vesterbacka, chief marketing officer of the game’s maker, Rovio Entertainment Oy saying that the irrationally popular Angry Birds Space wasn’t coming to the Windows phone 7, the truth comes out! It was learned today that ,
“Angry Birds Space” is confirmed for Windows Phone 7
To make the confusion even worse, Rovio’s official twitter account had this to say, even linking to the Bloomberg report:
This would have been a very big blow to the phone because Angry birds currently has been downloaded 700 million times and is currently the fastest growing game on Facebook.
“We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7,” Rovio Chief Executive Mikael Hed told Reuters completely destroying any bad news or hurt feelings of the massive amount of WP7 users. “We are working closely together with Nokia to bring our games to their platforms,” Hed said. “Our mutual goal is to bring the best possible experience to our fans, including all fans using Windows Phone devices.” He didn’t give a release date for the game though.
It was such huge news for Nokia, makers of a WP7 phone, that after the announcement their shares rose 0.6 percent higher to 3.97 euros.
