Rovio Entertainment announces Angry Birds 2 coming July 30

Angry Birds 2

It's hard to believe that there is no official sequel to Rovio Entertainment's popular Angry Birds. The original game, released in 2009, has spawned countless spin-offs and crossovers with other popular properties such as Transformers, but there has never been an official Angry Birds 2. That's all about to change on July 30, 2015, when Rovio will finally release a proper follow-up to Angry Birds.

The Halloween-themed Angry Birds Seasons was the second game released in the series in 2010. Since then Rovio has reached 3 billion game downloads, and has teamed up with celebrities like Green Day, and has even had its characters take over the Star Wars universe, twice. Angry Birds 2 will be the 12th game in the franchise, not counting the three spin-off titles, Bad Piggies, Angry Birds Stella and Angry Birds Stella POP!.

Rovio didn't release any details about the game, but fans of the franchise can visit the official Angry Birds 2 website or follow along on Facebook and Twitter for updates. Rovio has promised to release more information about the game on July 28.

The original Angry Birds is currently available on the Apple App Store for only $0.99.
