Company History

In 2003 Helsinki University of Technology students Niklas Hed, Jarno Väkeväinen, and Kim Dikert formed a company developing mobile properties called Relude.

In January 2005 Relude re-branded as Rovio Mobile Ltd. and later that year released the games Darkest Fear and War Diary: Burma.

In January 2006, Rovio acquired 3D mobile game developer Pixelgene. Later that year they developed a mobile version of Need For Speed: Carbon for Electronic Arts.

In 2007 Rovio continued to contract as an external developer creating mobile properties of Burnout for Electronic Arts, SWAT: Elite Troops for Vivendi and Collapse Quest for Real Networks.

In 2008 Rovio developed Bounce Boing Voyage for the Nokia N-Gage and Totomi for iPhone.

In 2009 Rovio released Angry Birds, their most successful game to date, both in terms of critical reception and sales. As of August 2010 Angry Birds has generated £2,000,000 in revenues on the Apple app store from sales on iPhone and iPad. The game has been released free (ad supported) on the Android platform and has as of December 2010 been downloaded over 7 million times.

On October 2010, Rovio released a special Halloween edition of game. This would, months later, in December introduce Angry Birds: Seasons.

In March 2011, a version of Angry Birds was released to tie in with the children's movie, Rio. This would be called Angry Birds: Rio.

In February 2012, a true sequel to Angry Birds was released titled; Angry Birds: Space.

November 2012, Angry Birds: Star Wars was released.
