After all that is-it-or-isn’t-it over whether Angry Birds Space would reach Windows Phone, Rovio has apparently confirmed the new port is not far off.

In a press release about Nokia’ new Lumia brand Windows Phone, as reported by The Verge, Rovio CEO Mikael Hed specifically mentioned the spin-off is headed for the also-ran platform.

“Nokia is one of our longest-standing partners, and Windows Phone and Lumia are of strategic importance to Rovio. We are very committed to bring our games to Lumia devices, and are looking forward to delighting our fans on the Windows Phone platform,” he said.

Angry Birds Space debuted at the top of the iDevice and Android charts and has been downloaded over 50 million times.
