Angry Birds Space hits 50 million downloads in 35 days

Angry Birds Space is now the biggest launch yet for Rovio, but the company isn't stopping here, promising "something bigger" in the future

 

Angry Birds Space is now the fastest growing mobile game of all time, after reaching a stunning 50 million downloads in just 35 days since it went on sale for iOS, Android and more.

The latest installement, which has had to vie with the likes of Draw Something for its headlines this type around, smashes the previous mark set it set with Angry Birds Rio, according to a statement from its Finnish developer Rovio.

It also reached the 50 million mark two weeks faster than Draw Something, which has become an Angry Birds-esque phenomenon in recent weeks.

The figures, which also include downloads on PC and Mac, wll come as a huge boost to the company, proving there's more longevity in the series than many had previously thought.

The company says: "Angry Birds Space hit 50 million downloads within 35 days, making it the fastest growing mobile game yet and breaking all our previous records. This has been simply amazing, and the whole Rovio team is thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game.

"We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere. While numbers like this certainly say something about the popularity of Angry Birds, for us the main goal is to keep creating fun new experiences that everybody can enjoy! We just launched the first free update for Angry Birds Space, with plenty more surprises in stock."

Rovio, which added ten new levels to the space-age title just last week also hinted that this is by no means the last time we'll see the Angry Birds take to the skies, promising grander releases in the future.

The statement added: "There's only one conclusion to draw: something even bigger is on its way! Stay tuned and keep flinging those Birds!"

Hmmm. "draw: something"? They couldn't mean that. Could they?
