PCR sister magazine Develop has ranked the world’s most successful games developers once again.
Now live in the App Store, the 2012 edition of the Develop 100 features a list of the top 100 developers in the world based on UK revenues generated by their games.
It is available only for iPad, and costs just £4.99. That includes profiles on each of the 100 studios, sales data and statistics, plus background facts and analysis.
GfK Chart-Track data has been used to formulate the list. Chart-Track has the most accurate chart reporting tools on the planet, monitoring the sale of almost every game and peripheral sold in the UK.
This year, EA Canada comes out on top, beating the likes of Nintendo, Ubisoft Montreal, Infinity Ward and Traveller’s Tales to the top spot. The studio has topped the charts three times previously.
Some of the most famous studios in the world have also secured a place in the listing – including the likes of Epic Games, Bethesda, Valve, and Naughty Dog.
But also featured are independents otherwise left out of the limelight, including the likes of Black Lantern, Pipeworks, Slightly Mad, and Land Ho.
The Develop 100 is available within the Develop magazine app for iPad. Click here to download the app now, if you haven’t already got it.
Plus, buying the Develop 100 will guarantee you free access to the other top 100s we’ll be launching in the coming months. Vol 1 is for retail sales, but we’ll be adding lists for online, social and mobile standings in future.
