Angry Birds Go

After countless versions of Angry Birds, Finnish game developer Rovio teased that it is working on a kart racing game called Angry Birds Go.

Rovio released a teaser trailer that didn't show any gameplay, but instead depicted live-action Angry Birds in a go-kart racing scenario.

Kalle Kaivola, SVP of Product and Publishing at Rovio, hinted that there may be more to the upcoming Angry Birds Go than just racing, saying, "The moment the kart fell apart in front of our eyes, we just knew it felt right."

Angry Birds Go will be a Red Bull-sponsored game, which will add to the caffeinated beverage maker's Red Bull Kart mobile games. Rovio promised more details on release and gameplay coming soon.

    I can't knock this.

    They have a greatly successful franchise and they should keep pumping out the titles while people are still enjoying them and willing to pay for them.

    I don't play Angry birds at all since the original release but from what I have seen none of their angry birds/bad pigs titles have been particularly bad so far so good luck to them.

    I'm a sucker for cart racing games... I'm interested to see what special moves each type one will be able to do. I also want to race as a pig. the King pig.

    I don't understand why this franchise is so successful. I tried the first game and I found it to be boring and repetitive.

    It's fast, easy, innocent fun. The first game also came out rather early in the smartphone era, when there was less competition and had somewhat addicting gameplay, while being highly polished. Mobile market is also one, where getting your name out gives huge benefits because people do not want to shuffle through the store, but would rather try out something they already know something about.
