Speaking to The Escapist, an Activision representative reportedly confirmed the move after the publication noticed a glimpse of the game on one of Activision's sizzle reels at the publisher's E3 2012 booth.

"We'll have some news for you in about two weeks," Activision told The Escapist. "Wait until you see Angry Birds on consoles in HD."

Later, Activision community spokesperson Dan Amrich also confirmed the news via his community blog, saying, "Activision is doing some form of Angry Birds on consoles. It's the teasiest of the teases, but it is official."

In May this year, Angry Birds developer Rovio Mobile today announced that games in the bird-flinging, pig-destroying portable strategy game franchise have been downloaded more than 1 billion times.

The developer also announced it is working on a new game titled Amazing Alex to be released later this year.
