Game Developer magazine is releasing a report ranking the top fifty (50) game development studios across the globe in their March 2008 issue, which will be on shelves in…stores…I suppose…soon?
Now? Sometime. At the top of the list is Nintendo’s Kyoto studio, makers of Wii Play, Wii Sports, and two Brain Age titles, Brain Age and Brain Age 2: The Secret of the Ooze. Rounding out the top five studios are Infinity Ward (Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare), Blizzard Entertainment (World Of Warcraft), Electronic Arts Canada (FIFA Soccer 08, NBA Street: Homecourt), and Valve (Portal, Team Fortress 2). Also of note is Hudson Soft at #19, makers of Mario Party 8, Mario Party DS, and probably a microscopic Mario Party that is absorbed through the skin.
