Are you ready for the glorious return of Flappy Bird? Because it's finally happening!

According to CNN, Dong Nyugen will be returning to app stores everywhere, letting players who are addicted to punishment try to get high scores again.

Nyugen had stated that Flappy Bird was gone forever and that he'd be working on new IPs. The reason he pulled the game from stores was because he thought players' addictions had gone out of control.

While there are a whole host of Flappy Bird clones on the market, we're fairly sure the return of the .GEARS Studio original will spark some more interest again.

There's no set date on when the famed bird will return to app stores, but we'll keep you updated.
