Angry Birds Coming to Facebook Soon

Angry Birds has been everywhere in recent months, popping up on Conan, birthday cakes, board games, plushies, and 30 million Android devices. If you've been too distracted by Facebook to notice, prepare to be subjected to its charms later this year.

Speaking to Wired UK, Rovio's Mikael Hed revealed that there is a Facebook version of the popular game in the works, and that it will feature "completely new aspects to it that just haven't been experienced in any other platform." In addition to that, the "collaborative nature" of Facebook will result in those dastardly pigs having "a more prominent role." Considering all they really did in the original game was sit under precariously-built structures until a block fell on their heads, this could mean any number of things.

There are much bigger plans for Angry Birds than simply releasing it on Facebook and consoles. "We are building our infrastructure with Angry Birds," explained Rovio Might Eagle Peter Vesterbacka. "So we have the distribution, the marketing, everything in place, so that we can basically take any IP and drop it in. And we have the capability of producing the games on all the platforms -- smartphone, consoles, PCs, Mac, online, Facebook -- you name it. Then the TV, the movie side, it will happen when the time is right."

In addition to the other iterations that are in the works, a special tie-in version of Angry Birds for the animated film Rio will be releasing later this month. Earlier this week at GDC, it was announced that the game is close to breaking the 100 million downloads mark. It won't be long before just about everyone you've ever met has played Angry Birds.
