Angry Birds Space Making the Jump to Windows Phone After All

Earlier in the week we reported that Rovio had no plans to bring its newest iteration of Angry Birds to the Windows Phone platform. However, it seems as though the company has had a change of heart. Speaking with Reuters, Rovio’s CEO Mikael Hed stated:

“We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7,” but confirmed a launch date had not been set yet.

One of the initial reasons given for Angry Birds not being available on the Windows phone platform is that it would require too much work in comparison to WP7 marketshare and that a port wouldn’t be worth the effort.

This statement by a major game developer was seen as a blow to Window Phone as a platform, since getting support from major developers invariably leads to a trickle from the small guys. Still, this is good news for all you Angry Birds fans out there. We’ll let you know when Rovio releases a more concrete date. Until then, stay tuned.
