Because the creator of the game said it was "ruining his simple life" ... guess not everyone is just out for riches and fame ;) .. he did say he could continue to create games but I guess if they get too popular he will pull them.

Didn't he commit suicide? Or was that just some fake thing on the internet

The creator of the game decided to take it down because of all the fame over it.

The creator said that it was too successful. I think that the games sudden popularity overwhelmed him. But that's just too bad because he would be making more and more money. I guess he doesn't care too much about that though.

The creator said it became too popular and he was overwhelmed. But in all reality, when he announced he was taking it off the App Store, that caused a huge increase in the number of people buying it!

If you still want to download and play Flappy Bird you can get it from here:

It is no longer available on any app store unfortunately, but the legend will live on. In fact, there is a phone on ebay with flappy bird on it selling for over $3,000 right now. Flappy Bird is quite a valuable app now that it has been removed. If you have it already, you should hold onto it because to someone it may be worth something.
