Rovio has announced Angry Birds 2 has amassed 20m downloads during its launch week.

The milestone follows the mobile gamenetting 1m players in its first 12 hours outon the App Store and Google Play.

"When we were developing and testing Angry Birds 2, we had good reason to believe we were on to a good thing, but the enormous groundswell of enthusiasm for the game from loyal fans and casual newcomers alike has been humbling," Creative Director Patrick Liu stated.

"It took the first Angry Birds game more than 9 months to reach this many players, and we thank all our fans for growing the flock so quickly!"

According toGames Industry, Angry Birds 2 has become the most downloaded app in over 100 territories. That said, the free-to-play title is still in the process of generating major revenue from the large number of downloads – currently sitting at 37thon the US and UK grossing charts for games.
