Up from last year's runner-up ranking on the Develop 100 list of the most successful game developers, Nintendo this year took the top spot while former titleholder Blizzard Entertainment plummeted to number 80. The current champ's most profitable release this past year was Wii Fit.
Eating the big N's pixellated dust are the rest of the top ten studios and their most successful titles: Infinity Ward (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2), EA Canada (FIFA 10), Ubisoft Montreal (Assassin's Creed II), Foundation 9 (F1 2009), Sega Studios Japan (Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games), Capcom (Resident Evil 5), Treyarch (Call of Duty: World at War),Yuke's (UFC 2009: Undisputed), and Level-5 (Professor Layton and the Curious Village).
