Game Developer magazine editors are reminding developers to vote in the 2009 edition of the magazine's Top 20 Publishers survey, ranking the top companies in the game business today. Developers are asked to complete the brief survey, offering both first-hand and third party perceptions of retail publishers, which will determine this year's ranking, alongside other data such as revenue, number of releases, and average review score. This is the seventh annual Top 20 Publishers countdown, which Nintendo has won two years in a row. With the publishing industry constantly in flux, with lots of recent closures and mergers, this latest list is certain to be an interesting one (though this data does pertain to the calendar year 2008, so publishers like Midway still remain). The full survey is in two parts. The first part is a reputational section, where all participants can anonymously rank and, optionally, comment on all major publishers. The second part focuses on those game industry professionals who have managed or participated in relationships with specific publishers, either as employees or as third-party developers. Both are part of the same survey form. All of the survey feedback is completely anonymous, and results will be revealed in depth in the October 2009 issue of Game Developer magazine (and later on Gamasutra), which will also contain a sidebar on digital distribution-oriented publishers. Full, canonical data will also be available in a forthcoming report from Game Developer Research.
