Celebrating 50 million players!

by
50 million players

It was almost exactly a year ago when we wrote a blog post celebrating our 100,000th install on Facebook for Who Has The Biggest Brain? – our first title.

Today, or last week to be precise, we passed the 50 million registered players mark. Quite some growth in less than a year! We also recently passed the 4 million daily active players mark – up from around 40,000 a year ago.

We’ve been amazed at the response from our players to our 6 released titles – Who Has The Biggest Brain?Word Challenge, Bowling Buddies, Pet Society, Geo Challenge and Minigolf Party – all developed by our three internal studios.

Facebook users were the first ones to have access to our titles and that shows – we now have 5 out of the top-10 games by activitiy on the platform. But our recent launches on MySpace, Bebo and Yahoo have grown quickly, too!

Social gaming is a hot topic at the moment. Just this month we were featured in EDGE magazine as well as listed as one of the top-10 most promising start-ups in the UK in the Financial Times (UK’s leading financial newspaper – clip below). And it seems the rest of the games industry is slowly but surely starting to catch on – social gaming has suddenly popped up as a major topic in key games industry conferences including GDC 2009 and Develop 2009.

So lots to celebrate and lots of work ahead – we still feel we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible and are working on a lot of fun things in all our studios. A very exciting time for the industry and for all of us at Playfish!
