Rovio stated that the reason behind their decision to delist Angry Birds is “due to the game’s impact on our wider games portfolio.”
They also hope that fans of Angry Birds can continue to show love in their other games such as Angry Birds 2, Angry Birds Friends, and Angry Birds Journey.
To download the original Angry Birds before it gets delisted, you can head to Google’s Play Store.
It is also available on Apple’s App Store while being priced at USD 0.99 on both platforms.
