Rovio will soon launch a new episode for its extremely successful game, Angry Birds. The new episode titled “Mine and Dine” is the sixth episode overall. Rovio made this announcement through its Facebook page stating;
We have another brand new episode coming up for Angry Birds! Take the fight for the eggs to dark underground caverns and use the geology to your advantage to root out the peskiest of piggies! Soon available in appstores everywhere!
Exact date of the release is still not known. However Rovio has submitted Mine and Dine to Apple for approval and the fun is expected to begin very soon. There is no news when the update will hit the Android market. Price for the update is also not available.
Things are moving quite fast in Rovio’s empire. Current year can be marked as the year of Rovio’s glory. The company’s franchise ‘Angry Birds’ turned out to be a phenomenal hit in different markets and platform. In March 2011, the company successfully raised $42 million in venture capital funding. Recently, Rovio also secured a deal with connected TV box-builder Roku to launch AngryBirds, Angry Birds Season and Angry Birds Ravio to Roku-equipped TVs. Last week Rovio acquired the leading Finish animation studio, Kombo to step into animated entertainment.
The pace of things tell that Rovio might be looking for an IPO, soon.
