'Flappy Birds' Returning in August With Multiplayer

May 15, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Flappy Birds will be coming back, and when it does it will be a multiplayer game, according to the CNBC program Closing Bell. Host Kelly Evans confirmed on Twitter that the game will release in August. When it is re-released it will offer a multiplayer component and "less addictive" gameplay. The last point is important to creator Dong Nguyen, who took his game offline because it ruined his simple life and because he felt it was too addictive.

Nguyen is currently working on another project as well which apparently involves "one guy jumping from building to buildings," according to the show.

At its peak, Nguyen said he was pulling in $50,000 a day from advertising within the mobile-gaming sensation. The game was downloaded more than 50 million times before Nguyen took it offline.
