Angry Birds Expecting 1 Billion Downloads Soon

Mobile game sensation Angry Birds has just reached the 250 million download mark, and expects to hit 1 billion downloads very soon.

Along with Angry Birds experience explosive growth on mobile phones, Rovio (makers of Angry Birds) is looking to expand it’s desktop growth by coming to Facebook and Roku boxes.

Already, every time I open Google Chrome I see Angry Birds being promoted.

Along with the expectation to reaching 1 billion downloads, Angry Birds developers and executives are looking for more investment money as well.  Their plans are to expand merchandising globally to include an Angry Birds book and Angry Birds flip flops.

  • I really don’t think that any new themed versions of Angry Birds are actually costly, or require extra funding, after all, it’s just new graphichs, the game engine is already there.  I do believe that this game will end up becoming a classic like pacman if it manages to stay in the spotlight for 1 more year.  The new investors round is probably aimed to expand their business to new games, don’t think that any will match angry birds success though.
