Is Flappy Bird coming back? Yes and improved, Developer confirms.
The popular indie game hit Flappy Bird will make a return at some point, the Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen confirmed on Twitter yesterday: "It will not be the original game but a better one. I keep my word."
When asked by a fan "can it also be for android? :)" he replied "Of course".
Regarding a release date Dong Nguyen said "I don't work by plan. I will release it when it is done."
So there you have it. Expect a new, improved version of the original Flappy Bird to make its appearance in the AppStore and Google Play sometimes in the future.
The new version will most likely have a playing limitation or a warning to take a break, as stated in the RollingStone interview published this month. Perhaps the control will be modified as well.
If you haven't read the interview yet, have a look and find out what are his thoughts on the Flappy Bird success and why did he pull the game from the iOS/Android stores.
What to play until then?
