But “not soon.” The crazy popular game’s creator and success-o-phobe, Dong Nguyen tweeted earlier Wednesday that the game will be put back in the app store.
@painfullpacman Yes. But not soon.

What a tease.
If you are the world’s worst procrastinator and never downloaded it despite the several day warning you had, congratulations. You get to join the rest of us in our sick little world where the only thing that matters is a dumb looking bird and Mario tubes.
No word on when Nguyen is going to re-release the game that was (and still might be) reportedly making him $50,000 a day. Straight up “fuck you” money.
“Flappy Bird was designed to play in a few minutes when you are relaxed,” Nguyen told Forbes in February. “But it happened to become an addictive product. I think it has become a problem. To solve that problem, it’s best to take down Flappy Bird. It’s gone forever.”
Make up your mind, dude. The world is watching.
