Angry Birds 2 soars to lofty heights with 130 million downloads

Rovio's Angry Birds 2 has achieved 130 million downloads since it initially launched back in March 2015.

The game is a free-to-play edition of Angry Birds, the game that made Rovio famous, and was launched globally in the summer of 2015.

The stat was revealed by the game's Lead Game Designer and Product Manager Måns Wide in an interview about its first year since launch and the live ops that continue on it today.

It's an impressive number, but it is just a drop in the ocean of Rovio's 3.5 billion downloads across its entire catalogue of games.

The Angry Birds franchise has proven to be instrumental in Rovio's business. It currently has four other Angry Birds games in soft launch, and recently cancelled Angry Birds Football.
