Angry Employees, it’s not a new game from Rovio, although it is something Rovio has created. Today the company has announced that they are downsizing their workforce, and will be letting go roughly a third of their staff who will soon be needing to find new jobs. In total that is 213 people who will be leaving Rovio.

Rovio has pushed out a duo of Halloween-themed updates to two of their games, Angry Birds Pop! and Angry Birds 2. Like any good Halloween type of update, both of these are filled with zombies. Of course these are zombie pigs, all of which you will have to deal with in all the new Halloween-themed levels that have been added to each game.
It has been a bit since we posted anything related to Angry Birds so we figured that all of the franchise’s fans out there would want to know when they first trailer for the Angry Birds movie shows up. Well it has and now you can see a bit of a sneak peek at what the Angry Birds movie will look like.
So Rovio has announced that an official sequel to Angry Birds will be arriving at the end of this month. That’s right Angry Bird fans, you will soon be able to download Angry Birds 2 on July 30th. The announcement originally came via a Tweet (followed by an official blog post) from the official Angry Birds account with a statement of “Bigger. Badder. Birdier. July 30th”. Accompanying the statement was a giant number 2 image with a very angry looking red bird inside the two.
A couple of days ago we reported on Sonic Dash and the fact that the game has broken the 100 million downloads mark, which is the total amount of downloads across all platforms. At that time there was mention of a special event that would be taking place to celebrate this feat, and that there would be special guests showing up. However those special guest were not announced and wouldn’t be until today. So who are they? Well it is the Angry Birds.
Rovio has released a new trailer for their upcoming Angry Birds Fight! game and while this may not be on the level as the first two trailers, there is still a level of strangeness to this trailer. Admittedly, as strange as these trailers are, they are also somewhat entertaining, sort of like when you see a car accident, you can’t help but look a little bit at least.
So Rovio has announced a new Angry Birds game that will be heading our way soon called Angry Birds Fight! and what better way to announce a new Angry Birds game then with Sumo Wrestlers and strange children right? Right. If you think this is a head-to-head brawler featuring the Angry Birds, which actually would be kind of cool, then we are here to tell you that it isn’t.
Rovio is keeping the Angry Birds train rolling forward with a new release today called Angry Birds Stella POP!. Based off of the morally conscience Angry Birds Stella game, this is a match-3 puzzle spin-off that deals with saving exotic critters. Of course taking out the evil pigs is still a part of the game as well. Mind you it is a bit ironic to save exotic creatures while getting rid of pigs which is also a creature of the world last time I checked.
Rovio is still able to come up with ideas for episodes for all of their Angry Birds games and today the Angry Birds Seasons title is getting one of those new episodes. This time the entire episode is themed after the NBA since the NBA season is wrapping up. The episode is officially called NBA Ham Dunk.
Rovio is celebrating the fifth birthday of their beloved franchise that literally took the company from being an obscure indie developer studio to a multi-billion dollar brand. Angry Birds has turned 5yrs old yesterday and to celebrate the original game has received a new content update.
