Big Point goes from €10 to €200 Million Income in 4 Years

June 22, 2011

Here’s the quote from Games Brief:

What struck me was the impressive revenue progression of Bigpoint, the browser-based games company that makes free-to-play games mainly aimed at core gamers.

Here are the numbers:

  • 2007: €10 million
  • 2008: €28 million
  • 2009: €60 million
  • 2010: €200 million

That’s pretty impressive stuff. Revenues have pretty well tripled every year since 2007. If they do it again, they’ll make half a billion euros in 2011.

Big Point make easy-to-play browser based games such as Dark Orbit. The idea is that you don’t need to install any software, just point your browser at the game and off you go…. Such games attract a big player base because often they are free, there is a low barrier to entry both in terms of gameplay and technology. These factors also go towards explaining the huge growth of the sector.
