Angry Birds Space coming to Windows Phone after all

Corroborating our earlier reports, Rovio has said Angry Birds will come to Windows Phone … eventually.

Speaking to Reuters  Rovio Chief Executive Mikael Hed said:

"We are working towards getting Angry Birds Space to WP7," but confirmed a launch date had not been set yet.

Rovio had complained that porting the game to Windows Phone would require too much work in relation to the market share to make it immediately worthwhile.  This was interpreted by many that it would never come to Windows Phone, but we had earlier reported that Saara, the social marketing manager at Rovio had said Rovio was working “day and night” on Angry Birds Space for “relevant devices”, implying it would come eventually.

The Angry Birds brouhaha has been interpreted by some as a major blow to Nokia’s Lumia strategy.

Thanks Michel for the tip.
