Update: Flappy birds developer Nguyen has followed through with his threat. As the App is no longer available on the iTunes App Store or Google Play as of Sunday afternoon.
In an unexpected turn of events, Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has said that he will take the game down — we suspect he meant taking down from the iOS and Android Google Play stores — today for reasons unknown. According to his tweets, Nguyen, whose surprise hit is making $50,000 a day in ad revenue, said that he “cannot take this anymore” and would have the game removed remove the game 22 hours from now, or midday Sunday. He however made it clear that there were no legal problems, the game had not been acquired, and he had not quit making games.
