Flappy Birds gif

Stop the presses!

Back in March, Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen told the world that Flappy Bird — the game that killed time, destroyed lives — would one day return the Google Play Store, just not anytime soon. It appears we now have a better idea of when to expect the game to make its triumphant return to mobile, thanks to an interview with CNBC.

In the interview, Nguyen says he’s working on a new, less addictive version of the game that will introduce gameplay element: multiplayer. If that doesn’t sound even more addictive, I don’t know what does. The game is set to release in August.

We now return you to your normally scheduled programming.
