Having sold over 2 million copies to date, Flight Control is without a doubt one of the most successful iPhone apps available. And now that Apple’s taken the wraps off their new tablet, the iPad, developer Firemint is ready to take Flight Control to the next level.
“We will bring an optimized and reimagined version of Flight Control to iPad,” reads a post on the developer’s website. “Like almost 140,000 other apps on the App Store, Flight Control will work perfectly on iPad without any changes from us, but we want to ensure a delightful experience on iPad that feels just right.”
So what’s in store for the iPad version of Flight Control? Firemint hasn’t revealed their hand just yet, but they did hint that they’ve been working on the updated game well ahead of Apple’s official announcement this morning:
“We started developing Real Racing before the iPhone 3G was announced. Similarly, we are already building our next generation of games for higher definition, more powerful devices than are available today. We like to imagine what the devices of tomorrow will be capable of, and invest in bringing our games to the next generation of hardware. The iPad announcement and Apple’s A4 chip have come at a fantastic time for us. We are working on some incredibly fun and exciting games that will look amazing on iPad and take full advantage of its features, as well as working brilliantly on iPhone and iPod touch.” [1up]
