Flappy Bird confirmed to make a return, but not soon

Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird captivated the hearts (and phones) of many in its short time on the Google Play Store, but its time came to an end when its creator, Dong Nguyen, took it down for being too addictive and not being able to cope with all the hate and death threats. This was in spite of making an estimated $50,000 a day from ad money. We couldn’t blame the guy, as he didn’t exactly sign up for fame and expect such hate and backlash from users and media alike.

However, he has now tweeted that Flappy Bird will be coming back to the iOS App Store (and most likely the Play Store). Unfortunately, he also stated it won’t be happening soon. We can only speculate why it isn’t happening soon. Is he waiting for the hype to die down, to release the game into a more quiet and less obsessed fanbase? Or is this all a publicity stunt? I won’t pretend to know, but it’s interesting to think about.

Anyway, Flappy Bird is confirmed to be coming back to us. I don’t feel any single way about this, because I wasn’t obsessed with the game in the first place, but I can imagine a lot of people will be very happy about this. What about you? Leave a comment telling us your thoughts!

    For 50k a day you can make all the death threats a day you want towards me :P. I’ll just be living in a remote island somewhere totally not reading any of them.

    I’m pushing for a sequel.

    Top contenders for the title are “2 Flap 2 Furious” or “Flappy Bird 2: Flappy’s Revenge.”
