Is the rumor about the return of Flappy Bird some kind of sick joke that was conjured up by the Internet in preparation for April Fool's Day? Not likely, now that the creator has shed some light on his decision to bring it back.
Creator Dong Nguyen had recently hinted at possibly bringing the wildly popular game back online after he removed it from the App Store last month due to its overwhelming success and related army of Internet trolls that came with it. But a couple of days ago a Twitter user straight up asked him if he was planning on bringing the game back -- to which he got this reply.
So, according to Nguyen, the game is coming back -- just "not soon," and saying that it will be released "when it's done." He says he's got a few other games in the works he'd like to launch before bringing Flappy Bird back from the dead.
