Angry Birds’ classic version delisted by owner from Play Store

Angry Birds, the game that had everyone hooked on their smartphones, is making some changes. Rovio, the company behind the game, has announced that they will be delisting the classic version of Angry Birds from the Google Play Store. This means that players will no longer be able to download or update the game on Android devices.

The reason behind this decision, according to Rovio, is the game’s impact on the company’s “wider games portfolio”. It’s not entirely clear what this means, but it’s possible that Rovio wants to focus on newer versions of the game or on other titles in its collection. It’s worth noting that the original Angry Birds game was released way back in 2009 and has since been followed by several sequels and spin-offs.

However, fans of the classic Angry Birds need not despair just yet. The game will still be available on the App Store for iOS devices. The only difference is that it will be renamed as “Red’s First Flight” to avoid confusion with newer versions of the game. The App Store version will also receive updates and support, so players can continue to enjoy flinging birds at pesky pigs.

Angry Birds has been a cultural phenomenon since its release, with millions of downloads and even a Hollywood movie adaptation. The game’s simple but addictive gameplay, along with its colorful characters and fun animations, have made it a favorite among casual gamers of all ages. The delisting of the classic version may disappoint some fans, but Rovio has assured players that they will continue to support and update the game on the App Store.

The delisting of Angry Birds Classic from the Google Play Store may come as a surprise to some fans of the game. However, it seems that Rovio has its reasons for this decision and is committed to supporting the game on other platforms. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a casual player, you can still enjoy flinging birds at pigs on your iPhone or iPad.
