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
