The highly popular Flappy Bird game that was pulled from the App Store by its developer, Dong Nguyen, may see a comeback in the future. When asked if Flappy Bird would ever come back, Nguyen told Rolling Stone that he is considering bringing the game back, and that it was removed simply because people were too addicted to it and needed a break:
"I'm considering it," Nguyen says. He’s not working on a new version, but if he ever releases one it will come with a "warning," he says: "Please take a break."
As news hit of how much money Nguyen was making, his face appeared in the Vietnamese papers and on TV, which was how his mom and dad first learned their son had made the game. The local paparazzi soon besieged his parents' house, and he couldn’t go out unnoticed. While this might seem a small price to pay for such fame and fortune, for Nguyen the attention felt suffocating.
There's no estimated date, or even guarantee that the developer will bring Flappy Bird back to the App Store at this point in time, but as we hear more, we'll be sure to keep you updated. We know many of you were Flappy Bird fans just like we are. In the mean time, there are plenty of Flappy Bird wannabes available in the App Store to keep you occupied.
