Angry Birds 2 blasts 20 million downloads in first week

Rovio has smashed yet another milestone following the launch of Angry Birds 2.

We previously reported that the sequel had scooped 1 million downloads in 12 hours – a story that was quickly eclipsed by news that Angry Birds 2 sailed past the 10 million mark four days later.

Bigger, badder, birdier

Now that figure has skyrocketed to 20 million, as Rovio today released the official download figures for the game’s first week on the app stores.

To put that in perspective, it took the first Angry Birds game more than 9 months to reach the same number of players.

During the first week of launch, Red and his feathered crew were flung over 1.4 billion times, before blasting through over 300 million levels, maxing out the Destruct-O-Meter over 350 million times.

It all adds up to the fact that Angry Birds 2 has topped the most downloaded chart on iOS and Android in over 100 countries – including China.

“While Angry Birds 2 is off to a great start around the world, including key markets in the Americas and Europe, in China we are gaining a new foothold and seeing remarkable fruits of our well-functioning partnership with Kunlun,“ said Rovio’s Chief Commercial Officer Alex Lambeek.

“A new generation of Chinese gamers are getting to know the angry feathered flock, and we see a bright future together with Kunlun, one of the Chinese game industry’s largest and most important players.”
