Temple Run officially hits Android March 27, will be free

March 6, 2012
176

Good news this morning folks. The team at Imangi Studios has finally announced an official release date of the hugely popular game Temple Run for Android. We've mentioned it more than a few times before, and with huge responses and anger when it wasn't released in February like promised. Sadly we'll have to wait a few more weeks but it'll be here soon enough.

For some unknown reason this game has achieved a huge level of success being the top free and grossing app for iOS in January and passing over 40 million downloads. The wait for this game to hit Android has been a long one but I can happy say that Android will be running from Monkeys and enjoying Temple Run come March 27th and it will be completely free.

Here is what Co-founder Keith Sheperd had to say:

We are excited to finally share the Android release date with our fans who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of Temple Run. By expanding to more mobile devices, we hope to provide the same addictive and fast-paced gameplay to an entirely new group of players.

So that's it guys. No more rumors or suggestions of a February 9th launch or whatever the rumor was that had everyone up in arms. This comes from Imangi Studios themselves and remember, if you see Temple Run in the Android Market before March 27th most likely it's a fake as we've seen a few of those the past couple of weeks.

Who's excited for Temple Run on Android? I know I am!

        What do you mean? I can understand it fine.
        “When it finally reaches Android, it is already a has been with iOS.”

        What he’s saying is that when it finally comes to the Android market, people running iOS (iPhones, iPod Touches) will be bored with it.

    I was really annoyed when they said we will have to wait much longer than anticipated. This game will not be as popular now it has been almost 3 months. Many people I know who have an apple product have decided even after a month the same thing just got boring and that is why I think they should of released it much early even if there was a beta version.

  • Jason Kumar

    Yea

    i got pissed of from the fake release dates hoax. that is truly messed up. if this is another hoax. ill just give up on it.

  • Bangbangskitskit

    BULLSHIT.

  • Jamdude

    Nobody cares anymore, the app has taken too long to come out and everyone is pissed off with it, it’s your own fault, next time don’t tell people the app is coming out a month before it’s actually release -.-

  • http://discoverbramasta.blogspot.com/ Mohammad Nur Bramasta

    I am the most patient “waiter” >_<

  • Raven27703

    Its pointless now. Everybody played it to death nobody really cares about it anymore. They should’ve originally created it for both the android and apple. Now i’m wondering if it will get as many downloads seeing as how it took what felt like centuries to be released. I myself am unsure if I will download this game I waited forever, I’ve been tricked and I’ve played it plenty of times to get bored. Although I was anxiously waiting for it to be released so that I may download it on to my phone, I now feel as though it will be nothing but a waste of space. So Imangi Studios, do you have anything new for us? I believe temple run may have finally found an end to its endless course.

  • Pebbyimi

    temple run is a awesome game on itunes app store so i cant wait till i get it on my mobile phone!!! 

  • Pebbyimi

    i might have waited a while and been very patient but i will never come off my phone once it has come out!!

    • Man

      Did you read the article?

  • 13jpgbass

    Is there any reason why we have to wait almost a month for it?

    • GB Blalock

      It’s less than a month idiot…

    • GB Blalock

      It’s less than half of month

  • Dianen510

    Is this a joke , we’ve been waiting for the longest , I miss having a iPhone

  • Charlenem 1224

    This is sooo not true.   The date has been changing over and over and over again!

    • Man

      Then how come thus one was posted on their official Facebook by the real Imangi Studios? Al other dates were rumors that you idiots decided to believe.

  • Charlenem 1224

    This is sooo not true!  the date keeps changing over and over and over again!
    when it first “released” i downloaded it and i was a false app!i had to rate it 5 stars and share it on face book before i played!so i did, after i did that, i still couldn’t use the app
    so on march 27th, i doubt that many people are really going to download it.
    no one cares anymore.
    anyway, temple run should have came out the same day as it did on iphones and ipods or whatever…
    this is starting to piss me off!

    • EvanGHD

      yeah no one cares, that’s why it’s spammed at the temple run facebook page:L

    • squirrelxbean

      thats why it says the offical release date on their facebook page?! all the other ones were them THINKING it will come out. damn use your brain

    • Man

    • hookemhorns

      That was a scam app.

  • ieke

    nobody cares about this game anymore

  • Beth

    The Temple Run hype is over, should have released it the same time as iOS. Won’t get half as many downloads as it would have if it was released months ago.

  • Hannah

    Yay finally me so excited as dont have iphone or ipod to even sample people so god dame rude go hate somewhere where someone care if u dont like dont look no comment #stophatin

    • Frazier Skyler

      Ok first its damn not dame. and 2nd um god didn’t do anything to you so don’t really find that necessary saying (g.d.) does not make you cool nor does it get you anywhere.

  • Jordibaitup

    I wander if Imanji Studios have even realised that it was only popular because everyone’s mates were playing it. No one does anymore so its their loss far more than anyone’s that they’ve taken so long to get it to android. Most people have just lost interest now.

    • Mouse12193

      *realized

  • Jordibaitup

    Imangi*

  • Syed

    People calm the fuck down. Yes it’s finally coming out for Android, and sure it won’t be as big of a hit as it was when it came out for iOS, at least they’re releasing it. And I’m certain all of you bitching and whining are going to download it. BESIDES. IT’S FREE. WHY DO PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT FREE APPS?!

    • Jonesjanice87

      Your stupid as fuck, shut your mouth if your gonna have something negative to say about the people who want to play it dumbfuckk

      • Frazier Skyler

        They have a point its a game and people are acting like its the end of the world. its just a game i mean ya i want it to come out too but I’m not gonna throw a fit over it so lets grow up a little k? thanks

    • JimboTech

       You are aware of the major hardware and platform limitations that come with “BlackBerry” phones…

  • Jonesjanice87

    This has taken long enough! and when march 27 comes up, watch yall will postpone it again!

    • JimboTech

       Pretty sure Imangi are a team of two developers and one graphic designer? Give them some room, iOS and Android are two largely different platforms to develop for, even if they are both Linux based.

  • Stuartthomson1234

    Can’t believe these low lifes below me :L seriously it’s a damn Mobile app get a grip. I’ve been waiting years and years for GTA 5 to come out but i haven’t been whining my ass of about it. Think of it this way. Released early (incomplete and buggy) released when schedueled (Seamless and fun).

    who thinks it will never come out for android

    • Marlieboo101

      never!!

  • Roboguy12

    The sad thing is with the mobile marketplace, is that this game will soon not be popular anymore. Developers need to release games for both platforms at once like Rovio, Halfbrick, etc…It expands the target audience drastically, while at the same time not showing up late to the game on the most popular platform (Android). I’m sick of popular games getting to Android later than iPhone games!

    • http://www.androidcommunity.com Cory Gunther

       Angry Birds didn’t do that the first time, but I do agree if they launch at the same time it would be better.
