It’s official: Angry Birds Star Wars will be released for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Developers Rovio Entertainment in conjunction with Lucasfilm made a joint announcement confirming the rumors earlier today.
This announcement came in conjunction with the game’s launch on current gen consoles, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Wii, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS. Angry Birds Star Wars will be available on the Xbox One and the PS4 at the time of launch for both consoles.
