It’s fun to play games and there has been a massive surge in the number of people playing games and creating games over the last couple of decades. Games are no longer just for kids—they’re mass media entertainment, fueling sales of consoles and accessories. You probably even play free games every now and then to kill some time! You’ve all heard of Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft, and Square Enix. Without a doubt, these companies are among the biggest gaming companies in the world to date. But what about the biggest mobile gaming companies or upcoming gaming companies? What about the biggest Chinese gaming company or XBox games company? I’ll go through everything you need to know about the big gaming companies in order to answer that question.
If you play mobile games, you’ve probably heard of Supercell, the absolute biggest mobile gaming company in the world.
The Finnish company has been around since 2010 and is the world’s fourth-largest gaming company in terms of revenue, according to Forbes. The company was founded by Ilkka Paananen and Mikko Kodisoja, who had previously worked together at another mobile game developer. Their first game—a title called Gunshine—was released in 2011. The game was a hit with players, and Supercell went on to make more games like Boom Beach, Clash Royale, Hay Day, and Brawl Stars (which is still in beta).
Supercell’s success can be attributed to its unique approach to making games: it focuses on small teams that are highly specialized in their respective fields (game design, programming) so that each member knows exactly what they’re doing when working on a project. This allows for rapid iteration of new ideas and concepts so that if something doesn’t work out right away it can be scrapped without much wasted time or effort invested into it upfront.
Tencent is the biggest Chinese gaming company. They have developed games and made deals with other companies to create games that are played on their platform. They have more than one billion users, which is more than any other company in the world according to Forbes. Tencent has been around for about 20 years and has grown to become one of the largest companies in the world. Tencent was created by Ma Huateng in 1998, who still owns the company today. The name “ten” means “all” and “cent” means “one hundred”, so it’s easy to guess what they were trying to get across with this name: they want everyone to be able to play all games on their platform!
And last, but not least, here is Blizzard. Blizzard is one of the biggest gaming companies in the world. It’s known for developing and publishing some of the most popular video games in the world. Blizzard’s first game was released in 1991 and was called “The Lost Vikings.” The company has since released many other successful titles, including “World of Warcraft” (2004), “Diablo III” (2012), and “StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty” (2010). In 2015, Blizzard won a Guinness World Record for most popular online role-playing game with over 10 million subscribers to its online service, Battle.net.
