Rovio Classics: Angry Birds was unlisted from Google Play on February 23, 2023, and is no longer available in that store. However, the game can still be found in the App Store under the name Red’s First Flight. An announcement was made from Rovio’s official Twitter account on February 21, 2023 regarding the changing availability of the game. You can read the announcement below:
“We have reviewed the business case of Rovio Classics: Angry Birds, and due to the game’s impact on our wider games portfolio, we have decided that Rovio Classics: Angry Birds will be unlisted from the Google Play Store on Thursday, February 23. Additionally, the game will be renamed to Red’s First Flight in the App Store pending further review. Rovio Classics: Angry Birds will remain playable on devices on which the game has been downloaded, even after it has been unlisted.
We understand that this is sad news for many fans, as well as the team that has worked hard to make Rovio Classics: Angry Birds a reality. We are extremely grateful to the Angry Birds fans who have shown their love of the brand and this game from the beginning. We hope those fans can continue to bring that passion to our live Angry Birds slingshot games such as Angry Birds 2, Angry Birds Friends, Angry Birds Journey, and Angry Birds Reloaded, where our goal every day is to craft the best possible experience for players.”
