Rovio is set to officially launch Angry Birds 2 on July 30, but the first true sequel to their popular game series won't make an appearance on Windows Phone, according to an email sent to one of our readers from a Rovio support representative.
A Windows Central reader emailed Rovio asking the company to " Please make your new Angry Birds 2 available (sic) for Windows Phone". The response from Rovio was unfortunately not what many wanted to hear:
"Unfortunately, Angry Birds 2 will not be released for Windows Phones. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope that you have a chance to play the game on one of the supported platforms, such as Android or iOS!"
Rovio has been good in supporting Windows Phone in the past, with most of its Angry Birds games and spin-offs available for the platform. There's still hope that Angry Birds 2 might be released for Windows 10 tablets and PCs or even the Xbox One console. We have contacted Rovio to see if we can more information on their plans for the game.
Thanks to Buster for the tip!
Update: Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka confirmed via Twitter that Angry Birds 2 is not coming to Windows Phone "for the time being"
