The news comes from studio head Mark Sorell who made the announcement on Twitter.

It’s with a heavy heart that I tell you the @rovio London Studio is going to close. Sad times for us, but I look back with genuine pride at my time with these talented and kind people. Been quite a ride.

Executive Producer Will Luton and Senior Game Developer Geraldo Nascimento took to Twitter as well to confirm the closure.

Hi everyone. I'm one of the developers made redundant as @rovio closes its London studio. Working with this team was an incredibly special experience. My DMs are open if recruiters or studios want to reach out.

These really are the most talented people I’ve ever worked with. And an incredible team. If you’re a recruiter or studio lead and would like me to put you in contact, please reach out.

Rovio's London studio opened in January 2017 and contained a 7-person team.

In other Angry Birds news, the second Angry Birds movie is set for a September 2019 release. Directed by Thurop Van Orman, who worked on Adventure Time and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, and Peter Akerman who worked on The Americans.
