Angry Birds is one of the world’s most popular mobile games now a days, with 40 million active monthly users and 250 million downloads. Rovio Entertainment, the creators of this game, have been milking the franchise for all its worth over the past year.
Rovio Entertainment, is in talks to receive funding that would value the company at about $1.2 billion.
The investors likely to be interested in Rovio include game developers Electronic Arts and Zynga, and media giants News Corp and Walt Disney, said Michael Pachter, managing director of research at Wedbush Securities Inc.
These companies could help Rovio reach new audiences, he said.
”I can see how Disney would take Angry Birds and turn them into a theme-park ride and a movie,” said Mr Pachter, who is based in Los Angeles.
”Zynga could take Angry Birds and make it into FarmVille.”
