Top 25 game companies generate 65% of revenue, as industry grows 10%

Top 25 game companies generate 65% of revenue, as industry grows 10%

April 20, 2015 | By Christian Nutt




The global game market grew 10 percent in 2014, to a total size of $83.6 billion, says research firm Newzoo. The top 25 companies in the market generated $54.1 billion of that -- or 65 percent.

The company also ranked the top 10 game companies around the globe; China's Tencent handily took the number one spot over Sony, the number two, which in turn beat Microsoft. For the platform-holders, only game revenue is counted.

Of note is that EA and Activision switched places; the only two companies in the top 10 whose revenues went down from 2013 to 2014 are Activision and Nintendo. Mobile studio King beat out Nintendo for 8th place; according to Newzoo, if it were public, Supercell would rank at number 11.
