With thousands of game developing and publishing companies out there, imagine the honor that the developers at Gameloft felt when they heard they’d been selected by PocketGamer as the #1 Developer of 2011!  A leading developer and publisher of digital and online games, Gameloft soared to the top slot by supporting multiple platforms with high quality mass market games. The metrics used to determine the ranking is based on sales performance, critical acclaim of releases, business approach innovation and the number and range of titles released.

“It is an honor to be recognized by one of the leading gaming outlets in the industry,” said Michel Guillemot, CEO and chairman, Gameloft. “We worked hard to deliver great games at affordable prices for consumers who are hungry for the latest innovation for their devices. This achievement is not only a testament to our production powerhouse, but validates our approach in providing a diverse range of games through different channels.”

“The explosive growth of the mobile games industry meant coming up with our list of the top 50 developers of 2011 which was a tricky task,” said Jon Jordan, editor of PockerGamer.biz. “Yet, despite the competition, there’s no question Gameloft deserves the top spot. It’s demonstrated the ability to create a wide range of great games for all mobile and portable platforms, while growing its business at an impressive rate.”
