    Rovio today tweeted a teaser image of an upcoming Angry Birds game, which it calls "a big adventure with new birds." Many of the games in Rovio's ultra popular Angry Birds series have utilized the same group of birds introduced in the original game, each of which has its own special ability.

    While the company has added some new birds and modified existing birds for select games like Angry Birds Star Wars, today's tweet hints at some all new birds for the next Angry Birds game.

    Aside from revealing new birds, Rovio's teaser is short on information. It is not clear when the company plans to release its newest game, except for a vague "coming soon" announcement.
    Rovio's Angry Birds series has been wildly successful, garnering tens of millions of downloads and spawning an entire line of merchandise. The company has thus far released eight variations of the original Angry Birds game that debuted in 2009.

    Hopefully none of them are as stupid as the "rocket bird".

    That thing is enough to make me not bother with the thing anymore.

    Hmmm, my guess is that the soon will coincide with the rumored New Apple TV! Great little and popular game to show a new AppStore and the game capabilities of the aTV4.

    Could be way off but I would sure love to see this happen soon! :)

    Not any time soon, seeing their Viking and Thief game had limited success.

    Beat whatever the original free one is on the App Store about a month ago, 3 stars on each level in ~2 days of casual playing.

    It has potential, but are they all just ridiculously easy?

    To unlock new bird for 5 minutes $.99 or wait 12 hours.

    Or more likely: buy a game in December 2009 for $.99 and get free, consistent updates right up to the present day. I can't see how that's a bad thing.

    Moan all you like, but Angry Birds is reasonably priced and isn't at all aggressive with IAP. And although I haven't played the more recent AB game, I can't recall having to buy any IAPs to progress.

    The movie Rio 2 is due out in April. Possibly that version of angry birds because promo stuff for rio 2 has already started.
    Shot of some of the birds in it off imdb:

    Rio is getting a few updates within the original game apparently. This probably has more to do with the comic books launching in the summer.

    Maybe you should try the latest ones before that comment? :)

    The angry birds go is one of the examples.

    And what part of that game are you required to use IAPs to progress through the game or have a reasonable experience?
