Rovio: 50 million downloads for Angry Birds Space in one month’s time

The numbers are in and it’s quite obvious – people are not quite ready to move beyond the Angry Birds franchise anytime soon. Finnish game developer Rovio took to twitter to proclaim quite a hefty milestone for their latest game, Angry Birds Space.  According to them, the game has racked up 50 million downloads in the first 35 days.  To be clear, this is across multiple platforms, including Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and PC.  Nevertheless it’s one heck of a figure and one that should be commended.

…the fastest growing mobile game yet and breaking all our previous records. This has been simply amazing, and the whole Rovio team is thrilled to see such a fantastic reception for the game. We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere…We just launched the first free update for Angry Birds Space, with plenty more surprises in stock.

Looking ahead, Rovio is already teasing something “bigger” for fans.

There’s only one conclusion to draw: something even bigger is on its way! Stay tuned and keep flinging those Birds!

Anyone here anxious to find out what’s coming from the Angry Birds series?

    Is that total downloads to devices, total new installs, or what? Think about all the serial ROM flashers who re-download all their apps each time they put in a new ROM. I’m wondering if that falsely inflates those numbers.
