Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7 is being delayed until June 29
Windows Phone 7 owners are no doubt curious as to what Microsoft will show off come May 24th, but equally so, we’re sure that many are excited to finally get their game on with Rovio’s immensely popular Angry Birds game.

Sadly though, it seems that the game will be missing its expected launch date of May 25th, and instead, it’s being delayed for at least another month – June 29th to be specific. Microsoft announced that they truly want to ensure that the game will provide a better user experience, which is why they’re delaying it slightly. A spokesperson from Microsoft said, “The shift in timing of “Angry Birds” as the final title in the Must Have Games lineup was a decision made to ensure we provide the best possible gaming experience on Windows Phone.”

Without question, some Windows Phone 7 users will be bummed out by the news, but considering the story behind Angry Bird’s past flirtation with the platform, what’s another month going to do?

They need the extra month to update the title screen to read "Angry Birds 2009".
