Well this is interesting. The creator of the super-popular iOS and Android game Flappy Bird has promised to remove the game from App Stores by tomorrow. Dong Nguyen states that he “cannot take this anymore,” even though his game is currently bringing in $50,000 in revenue a day. He also says it has nothing to do with legal issues and that he has no interest in selling the game to anyone.

It is a bit strange that a game created May 2013 suddenly having huge success (Flappy Bird hit #1 on the Apple App Store on January 17th), and according to iPhone app designer Carter Thomas in a Newsweek article, Flappy Bird’s traffic trends look similar to “bot activity.”

So, play on, Flappy Bird enthusiasts, you may only have one more day of frustration.
