    Default Nintendo, Blizzard, Ubi Montreal top game devs

    Japanese, Californian, and Quebecois shops ranked as most powerful studios by Game Developer magazine; Rockstar North, EA Canada, Konami, Valve, Epic, EA Tiburon, and Treyarch round out top 10.
    Acclaim often comes to individual games, but the developers of those games can often go unnoticed. However, a study published today might give due praise to the game industry's best developers. The industry trade periodical Game Developer released a study titled "Top 50 Developers 2009", a follow-up to its inaugural study in 2008. In the report, the magazine named Nintendo's Kyoto studio, Blizzard Entertainment, and Ubisoft Montreal as this year's best developers.



    Blizzard isn't quite the king of the throne, but the regicide of Nintendo might be a possibility in the coming years.
    According to Game Developer's online sibling, Gamasutra, Nintendo was named 2009's best developer due to its "incredibly strong sales and high industry reputation." The past year saw Shigeru Miyamoto-led studio released smash hits like workout title Wii Fit and the cartoony racer Mario Kart Wii, both of which have sold 18.2 million and 15.4 million units worldwide, respectively. The site also lauded the company for titles such as Wii Play and the puzzle game Brain Age.

    Second place went to Blizzard, namely for the commercial and critical success of its latest MMORPG expansion, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, which sold 2.8 million copies a day after its release. Last year, its second expansion pack to its World of Warcraft series won GameSpot's 2008 Editors' Choice award. In Game Developer's 2008 top-developer list, Blizzard was ranked third, behind Infinity Ward, the developers of the critically-acclaimed shooter Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Since the developer did not release any games in 2008, it was not eligible for ranking this year.

    Rounding out the top three is Ubisoft's studio in Quebec's biggest metropolis. Buoyed by critical and commercial hits such as Far Cry 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and the cel-shaded Prince of Persia reboot, the company shot up nine places after finishing 12th last year.

    Game Developer's rankings were based on the retail performance of games in the US, UK, and Japan and said titles' average scores on review aggregator Metacritic. (Metacritic is owned by GameSpot parent company CBS.) Gamasutra also released an anonymous survey that asked community members to rate game developers on reputation.
