With its rapid rise in popularity, it was only a matter of time before Rovio's Angry Birds made Facebook its next roost.
In an interview with Wired UK, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed revealed that Facebook would soon see its own version of the popular mobile game. There will be completely new aspects to it that just haven't been experienced on any other platform, he said.
Hed said that collaboration would act as a significant part of the Facebook version of the game, and noted that the game's pig characters would play a larger role than in previous titles.
Rovio also plans to bring Bad Piggy Bank, its credit card-less mobile payment system, to the Facebook version of the game. Announced in December, the feature is aimed at simplifying the process of making in-app purchases by linking the game with the user's phone bill.
Hed did confirm that Angry Birds would reach Facebook next month, but did not mention a specific date.
Angry Birds has been downloaded 75 million times since its release in late 2009. Rovio recently announced that Windows Phone 7 and the Nintendo DS would soon be seeing versions of the game.
