In a quick turn of events, the ever popular Flappy Bird will soon bid farewell according to its creator, Dong Nguyen.
As what Dong Nguyen tweeted, “I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.” It was posted earlier this morning at 3:02 AM.
After that tweet, he came with more tweets regarding the reason behind his decision and some short clarifications.
If he will really remove the game by 1 AM (Manila time) from the App Store and Play Store, he might have to let go of his $50,000 daily ad revenue. Well, Flappy Bird is not the only game Dong Nguyen is working on. If you will check his App Store account, there are a couple of other 8-bit games under him.
Also, if this is really happening, Windows Phone users will not get to the chance to play the app on their device, contradicting earlier reports that Nguyen will push the game into that platform.
What do you guys think? Do we need to say goodbye to Flappy Bird soon? Or is it just a marketing gimmick to have more users download and play the game? Share your thoughts below.
