It’s official: Flappy Bird will return to app stores

If you’ve just gotten over your addiction to Flappy Bird, we have some bad, bad news for you: it’s coming back to app stores. Creator Dong Nguyen, who pulled the maddeningly more-ish game earlier this year over fears for his own and players’ mental wellbeing, told a Twitter user that it’d be back at some point “but not soon”.

Rumour: Titanfall 2 is coming – and it won’t be a Microsoft exclusive

Electronic Arts has reportedly signed a deal to publish the next Titanfall instalment, and unlike the first game (which was released last week) it won’t be exclusive to Microsoft platforms.

Titanfall is available only for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows, but GameSpot claims the new deal will allow EA to release it on PlayStation 4 too. That jibes well with a tweet from Titanfall developer Respawn’s Vince Zampella in October last year: he said that Respawn would eventually be making games for the PS4.

EA declined to comment on the report.
