Following a recent teaser, Angry Birds creator Rovio has officially announced the next chapter in the popular game series -- Bad Piggies. Featuring the infamous pigs from the Angry Birds games, the nature of Bad Piggies' gameplay remains a unknown, though the developer promises that there won't be a "slingshot in sight." Bad Piggies is due to launch on Sept. 27 on Android, iOS and Mac, with PC, Windows 8 and Windows Phone versions following shortly thereafter.

“There’s a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we’ve been constantly asked: what about the pigs’ side of the story?” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes.”

Rovio's sure to launch more teaser videos to keep the hype buzzing over in the weeks ahead, so chances are we'll learn more about this swine-centric sequel before long. Let us know what you think in the comments -- are you up for a fresh take on the avian-versus-boar dynamic? Or with so many existing spin-offs, have both pig and bird already jumped the shark?
