The studio behind the series has now released its financial results for the year 2013 which not only continue the Angry Birds success story, but also depict a visible decline in the company’s earnings and net profit. While the revenue of €156 million (approximately $216 million) is pretty similar to the previous year, the earnings as well as the net profit have dropped significantly to half of what they were in 2012. At first sight, this may seem like a cause to worry, but the Finish publisher has valid explanations for this decline.
The studio has started working on a motion picture that is scheduled to come to theaters worldwide in 2016. Aside from that, an animation studio was established in the Nordics which produces animated TV content, books based on the franchise were published in more than 30 languages and Angry Birds Playground, a physical learning space, was released. The Finnish studio grew from 500 to 800 employees in 2013 alone. It seems like fans of the feathery creatures have nothing to worry about.
