Espoo, Finland, 6 August 2015 – The sequel to the most downloaded mobile game series of all time is smashing records all over again, with Angry Birds 2 downloaded more than 20 million times in its first week of release.
As the number one iPhone or iPad download in more than 100 countries - and the most downloaded game on both iOS and Android platforms virtually worldwide - in its first week Angry Birds 2’s fans have raised their slingshots more than 1.4 billion times, blasting their way through more than 300 million eye-popping levels and gloriously maxing out the Destruct-O-Meter more than 350 million times over.
“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,” says Creative Director Patrick Liu. “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!”
“While Angry Birds 2 is off to a great start around the world, including key markets in the Americas and Europe, in China we are gaining a new foothold and seeing remarkable fruits of our well-functioning partnership with Kunlun,“ adds Chief Commercial Officer Alex Lambeek. “A new generation of Chinese gamers are getting to know the angry feathered flock, and we see a bright future together with Kunlun, one of the Chinese game industry’s largest and most important players.”
