Flappy Bird is returning, but ‘not soon’

Flappy Bird is returning, but ‘not soon’

There you have it, Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen says his beloved game is making a return to app stores. The word comes way of a reply to a tweet just two hours ago. Asked whether he would put the game back into the “App Store”, Nguyen replied, “Yes. But not soon.” It’s unclear whether this means Google Play Store or strictly Apple’s App Store; we suspect it will hit both.

Whereas we were once saddened to see the game pulled from various distribution channels, we recently had our hopes raised. A profile in Rolling Stone magazine from earlier in the month told us we might look for the game’s return at some point.

So, instead of wondering if it will ever come back, now you can ponder the definition of “not soon”.
