Angry Birds Space coming to Windows Phone after all?

First it wasn't, but now it is. Windows Phone fans can breathe a sig of relief as Rovio confirms that Angry Birds space will indeed launch on the platform

 

Rovio has moved to clarify earlier reports that it had no plans to launch the new Angry Birds Space game for the Windows Phone platform.

Earlier on Friday, the company seemed to deal a huge blow to both Nokia and Microsoft by saying that re-coding the latest version of the big-slinging classic was too big a job.

With both companies fighting together to reestablish themselves among the smartphone elite a snub from the mobile world's most popular franchise would have damaged the growing perception that the pair are on the rise.

"We’re the No. 1 app in the Windows Phone app store, but it’s a big undertaking to support it, and you have to completely rewrite the application," Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio's head of marketing told Bloomberg.

However, the company has spared the blushes of manufacturer and software developer by clearing up the situation, revealing that the company will add WP to the iOS, Android, Mac and PC versions of the new game.

Rovio Chief Executive Mikael Hed told Reuters: "We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7."

Hed did not announce a timescale for the release.

Meanwhile it's business as usual for Rovio, with the game storming to the top of the iOS charts upon release, putting Draw Something firmly in its place. It's good to be the king.
