Angry Birds Crashing Into Facebook SoonS

Perhaps spurred on by ripoff apps already in place, Angry Birds' developer says the game will have a Facebook adaptation inside of the month.

Angry Birds' official Facebook page has the announcement, promising to update folks on the game's rollout if they click the like button. If you don't see that, you may be one of the 1.2 million who have already liked it.

Mikael Hed, the boss at Rovio, the game's studio, says in the latest print edition of Wired's UK magazine that in the Facebook app "there will be completely new aspects to it that just haven't been experienced in any other platform." For example, "the pigs will have a more prominent role."

Elsewhere, the studio's chief for business development says that Angry Birds could be spun off into other genres, including driving or sports.
