“No plans” for ‘Angry Birds Space’ on Windows PhonePosted: March 23, 2012
The top selling iOS and Android game right now is Rovio’s followup to the slightly popular franchise known as Angry Birds. Where’s the Windows Phone 7 version? Here’s Vlad Savov from The Verge:
Bad news if you’re eager to try out the latest — and indisputably greatest — Angry Birds game on your Windows Phone: Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka has told Bloomberg that the company has “no plans” to port Angry Birds Space to WP7. The original game in the series is currently the top-selling Windows Phone app, but Microsoft had to assist Rovio with the port and Vesterbacka cites that same difficulty of porting software as the major hurdle.
I’m guessing Microsoft will step in again to “assist” Rovio in an attempt to stay (or should I say, become) relevant in the mobile space.
