Bigpoint's free-to-play games reach 250M registered players

German browser-based game developer and portal operator Bigpoint has registered more than 250 million players for its free-to-play online titles since launching in 2002.
Newsbrief: German browser-based game developer and portal operator Bigpoint has registered more than 250 million players for its primarily free-to-play online titles since launching in 2002, and seven months after it crossed the 200 million mark. The company's global publishing network -- which comprises over a thousand game portals and other sites available in more than 30 languages -- receives over 250,000 new players each day for its "key titles." Bigpoint has a catalog of over 60 casual and "core" internally developed games, including titles like Battlestar Galactica Online and Dark Orbit. It also distributes games from its partners, like Electronic Arts's Play4Free releases. The company says that it has a series of new launches planned for 2012, including titles that "leverage world-class Hollywood intellectual property," such as The Mummy Online and its Universal Monsters MMO.
