Video oyunları, bugün dünyanın en karlı sektörlerinden bir tanesi haline geldi. Dünyanın dört bir yanından geliştirici stüdyolar, bizlere üst kalitede oyunlar sunmak için muazzam büyüklükte vakit, efor ve bir o kadar büyük meblağda paralar harcıyorlar. Tabii ki harcanan para ve emeğin bir karşılığı olarak da büyük miktarlarda kazançlara ulaşıyorlar. Peki dünyanın en büyük 10 oyun şirketi listesinde hangi firmalar yer alıyor?
The world’s largest video game company is predictably Tencent. Tencent is a massive Chinese company that owns most of today’s most popular video games. Tencent doesn’t just focus on video games; it has stakes in Fortnite, League of Legends, Call of Duty, and many other games that have achieved incredible success. Tencent also owns nearly all Riot Games, behind League of Legends and Valorant, and part of Epic Games, behind Fortnite.
Sony Interactive Entertainment
The next big video game company on the list is Sony Interactive Entertainment. In addition to PlayStation video game consoles, Sony Interactive Entertainment also develops exclusive games. PlayStation exclusives are developed under various studios they own, including Last of Us developer Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games, which is behind recently acquired titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man and Sunset Overdrive.
Xbox Game Studios
Microsoft Game Studios was launched in 2000 but was later renamed Xbox Game Studios. Just as Sony is behind various games for PlayStation, Xbox Game Studios does the same for Xbox systems. Halo is by far the biggest franchise from Xbox Game Studios. Other games offered by Xbox Game Studios include Gears of War and the recently added Minecraft.
While Nintendo was initially a playing cards company, it has become a part of the video game world with many iconic video game consoles and games over the last four decades. Some of the biggest video game franchises are under Nintendo. These series include Super Mario, Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, and Super Smash Bros.
Electronic Arts, also known as EA, is behind some of today’s most popular video game franchises. EA offers us popular games such as Battlefield, Titanfall, The Sims, Need for Speed, Mass Effect, Dead Space, and Star Wars. EA is also responsible for all popular EA Sports games such as FIFA, Madden NFL, and NHL.
World of Warcraft, Call of Duty ve Overwatch gibi dünyanın en popüler oyunlarının arkasında bulunan Activison Blizzard, hayranları tarafından oldukça sevilen bir şirket. 2008 yılında Activision ve Blizzard’ın birleşme kararı şirketi dünyanın en büyüklerinden biri haline geldi.

The company has released famous video games such as Grand Theft Auto, Mafia, Manhunt, and Bioshock. It also publishes 2K Sports productions of 2K Games, which it owns. Today, due to the similarity of the name, it is frequently on the agenda with the lawsuits filed against many unrelated companies.
Another big video game company based in Japan is Square Enix. Both Enix and Square merged in 2001 to present the long-running Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, and many other major franchises.
1979 yılında kurulan Capcom, kuruluşundan bu yana Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Dead Rising, Street Fighter ve Marvel vs. Capcom gibi oyun serilerini geliştirdi. Firma ayrıca geçtiğimiz günlerde Castlevania serisinin 35. yıl dönümüne özel bir NFT koleksiyonu tanıttı.
