Report – Rovio Turns Down $2 billion Takeover from Zynga

By   /   Apr 17, 2012


The Social Gaming Giant Zynga is eager to expand its wings by taking over some big titles in the Social and Mobile gaming market. According to a report by Bloomberg, Zynga also tried to take over the trend setting Angry Birds for a whooping $2 billion.

The offer, however, was turned down by the high-flying Rovio Entertainment (the developer behind Angry Birds). The take over attempt seems confidential as the source hasn’t mentioned the time or any other additional details associated with the offer.

Zynga has been under a lot of pressure by ever growing competition so a desperate attempt to acquire something as big as Angry Birds shouldn’t be a surprise. Zynga recently bought Draw Everything studio OMGPop for $180 million, and they are looking forward to spending more in the future.
