Highest-grossing games in Rovio’s portfolio
Last week, Rovio also decided to remove the original Angry Birds from mobile stores. This comes less than a year after the company remade the game with Unity and released it under the Rovio Classics: Angry Birds name.
On February 23, it was removed from Google Play. Right now, it is still available on the App Store as Red’s First Flight. Rovio made this decision “due to the game’s impact on our wider games portfolio.”
