flappy

After its removal earlier this year, Flappy Bird is coming back to the App Store. Gawker spotted developer Dong Nguyen’s tweeted response to a question about whether or not it would ever return, which is a “Yes.”

As you can see, Nguyen doesn’t provide a timeline but does say it won’t bee “soon,” which suggests possibly there’s some additional development going into the game, or at least some kind of preparatory action so that Nguyen can deal with the life upheaval that’s bound to follow. Nguyen left the door open for a Flappy Bird return in his Rolling Stone profile, but this confirms that the bird will flap again.
