Angry Birds setting up indie publishing business

Rovio, the Finnish company responsible for infecting the world with Angry Birds, is plotting to enter the publishing business.

While there’s been no formal announcement, the company is apparently planning to establish a new publishing label for independent studios. They’ve reportedly been in touch with a number of mobile outfits regarding the move already.

“We have some plans for this area, but not ready to announce yet,” Rovio executive Peter Vesterbacka told Develop when asked for comment.

He does leave us with a bit of a tease though: “If we do something in the publishing area, you can expect it to be a bit different.”

And so we wait.
