The eighth annual Develop 100 is published today, answering the question 'Who makes the most successful games in the world?'
The answer can be found in a brand new digital book for iPad published by Intent Media and written by the editorial team behind Develop (www.develop-online.net) – the leading international publication for games developers.
Develop 100 is available now on iPad and produced using key data from GfK Chart-Track to list the best games 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.
The Develop 100 can be found within the Develop magazine app on the Apple Newsstand.

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, and continues to innovate and generate huge revenues through its FIFA games.
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.
Plus, in the coming months the Develop team will add new top 100 rankings to the listing, covering areas such as online, mobile and social successes.
