Company CEO Mikael Hed told Yle’s breakfast television on Friday that the new game will be called Amazing Alex and will be released in two months’ time.
The game is based on intellectual property Rovio purchased from the Casey's Contraptions game.
Hed says Rovio’s latest game has an educational element and centres on main character Alex, a curious young boy who loves to build things.
The company’s first hit, Angry Birds, has now been downloaded more than a billion times, making the epic battle between pig and bird a tough act to follow.
"The quality pressure is high. We want to maintain the high standard Angry Birds fans have come to enjoy," Hed said.
