Angry Birds Valued at $1.2 Billion

That’s right, due to upcoming investments made, the company (Rovio) is now valued at around $1.2 billion.

Angry Birds started off as a basic game that took users by surprise.  Ever since launch (2 years ago) the game has been downloaded over 300 million times and now has different products being sold such as t-shirts, backpacks, toys, flip-flops, or even a cook book.  There has also been rumors of an Angry Birds MOVIE.

These new investments that the company are thinking about making have been making people wonder what they could be.  Many people have been thinking that these new investments could be to gaming companies such as Electrical Arts or Zynga in order to bring Angry Birds to different audiences (yes believe it or not, some people actually haven’t heard of the game).

The company is even starting to dream about a Angry Birds theme park.  That seems to be like a fantasy but with Rovio being valued at $1.2 billion it might not be too far fetched.
