In an interview with Rolling Stone, Nguyen talked about himself, the journey of Flappy Bird, his hate for the clones that have been making money and more importantly how he is considering bringing the game back.

Seeing as how Flappy Birds is still minting money even though it is not available on the app stores anymore, the obvious question Nguyen is asked is if he plans on bringing the game back. He replies saying, I’m considering it. He further adds that if he does release a new version of the game, it will come with a warning Please take a break.
