Flappy Bird to receive re-release

Flappy Bird will eventually see a return to mobile marketplaces, creator Dong Nguyen has confirmed.

Nguyen revealed he was considering resubmitting the game earlier this month, and apparently has since made up his mind about it – though he adds not to expect the game’s return anytime soon.

"Yes. But not soon," Nguyen said, in response to a fan question on Twitter regarding a re-release of the popular mobile title.

Nguyen’s reply was in regards to Flappy Bird’s iOS version, but he later confirmed that the Android version would return as well.

Flappy Bird had been netting around $50,000 in ad revenue a day prior to Nguyen’s decision to pull it from the App Store and Google Play. Since it’s been offline, an average of 60 clones arrive daily on Apple’s store alone.
