The folks at Rovio have been busy it seems working on the next game for their insanely profitable Angry Birds franchise. This time around it's not a racing game but instead it's going to be a brand new RPG game dubbed Angry Birds Epic.

Angry Birds Epic is an adventure role-playing game set in a fantasy version of Piggy Island. It offers an awesome storyline, turn-based combat, a gripping campaign with a challenging end game, a rich system of crafting weapons, armour and potions with resources the players can collect or purchase, and much more.

Rather than rolling out the game globally, Rovio has decided to first do soft launch of sorts on iOS in Australia, New Zealand and Canada before a wider launch in late Spring. There's no official word on whether or not it will be released for BlackBerry 10 but at the same time there's no release date for Android either. Guess we'll have to wait and see if it arrives on BlackBerry 10 like all their other releases in the franchise.
