"We are delighted to see that Crossy Road keeps on entertaining so many fans around the globe,” said Hipster Whale CEO Clara Reeves. “Our team will keep on working hard to continue delivering fun content and adding new friends for our favourite Chicken."

The announcement coincides with Crossy Road’s Bashy Beaver update, a limited community event to unlock a new game mode and a limited edition Chicken.

Crossy Road is still hitting records five years after launch. The casual classic recently passed in-app purchase revenues of over $10 million.
