Mobile gaming firm Rovio is celebrating a huge milestone: Angry Birds has crossed a record 500 million downloads!
Less than two years after launching, the wildly popular game is likely the most downloaded in history. Consider that fans worldwide have spent more than the equivalent of 200,000 years playing the game, with about 300 million minutes tallied daily leading to more than 400 million birds being launched and 44 billion stars collected.
Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio said: “This is a fantastic landmark achievement for us, and we’re extremely delighted to see such an incredible amount of people enjoying our games. We remain committed to creating more fun experiences and bringing exceptional quality to Angry Birds Fans everywhere.”
Google and the Angry Birds developers teamed up for a commercial in September to promote the Chrome browser and Web Store.
