If the latest rumor is to be believed, it's time for the pigs to fight back in the next Angry Birds game. Pocket-lint reports that it has learned the details of the next game in Finnish developer Rovio's money-printing franchise. According to the website's sources, this next release will allow players to take control of the green boars with their very own slingshot against the various little birdies.

Just there are many varieties of Angry Birds, there will be several kinds of pigs to fling at the irate avian creatures in hopes of protecting the eggs that ... they stole in the first place. Pocket-lint even reports that it has been shown stills of this game in action, and that players will fling pigs at oncoming birds rather than have the birds simply sit inside wooden structures.

This reportedly pig-centric Angry Birds game is said to be scheduled for a holiday release. If this turns out to be true, we're so game. It's not the Angry Birds Kart that we were hoping for, but something like this could serve to mix things up a bit. We've reached out to Rovio for comment.
