Rovio has announced a new milestone for its massively popular and habit-forming game series of highly agitated birds after the latest title, Angry Birds Space, registered a whopping 50 million downloads in just 35 days from launch, which makes it the fastest selling mobile game ever.
Rovio said in a statement,
The team is thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game. We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere. While numbers like this certainly say something about the popularity of Angry Birds, for us the main goal is to keep creating fun new experiences that everybody can enjoy!
Angry Birds Space knocked up all record-breaking figures set by previous Angry Birds installments, and grabbed the title from Draw Something, which crossed 50 million downloads in 50 days, to be the fastest selling mobile game in history. This undoubtedly stands for the continuous arrival of new updates and titles for the franchise from the Finnish mobile game maker.
Angry Birds Space is available for download on Android, iOS, Mac and Windows platforms, with a Windows Phone version coming very soon.
