Despite many special editions and offshoots it took nearly 5 years for the smash hit Angry Birds to get a true sequel. Even after all this time the level of excitement has not cooled off and Angry Birds 2 beat download records and passed the 20 million mark during its first week of availability. It took 9 whole months for the original to reach these levels.
It became the #1 game on iPhones and iPads in over 100 countries, harkening back to the glory days when the original became hit on iOS. The game is a hit on Android too, launching over 1.4 billion birds at the dastardly pigs, beating the game's levels over 300 million times.
Angry Birds 2 is breaking into China thanks to Rovio's partnership with Kunlun. "A new generation of Chinese gamers are getting to know the angry feathered flock, and we see a bright future together with Kunlun, one of the Chinese game industry’s largest and most important players," says Chief Commercial Officer Alex Lambeek.
