Bigpoint Games is a German video game developer that also runs a gaming portal website with a number of browser-based massively multiplayer online role playing games it has produced[1] and has over 200 million registered users (announced in June 2011).[2]

Heiko Hubertz founded the company in 2002 and remains CEO.

In June 2008, General Electric and NBC Universal, along with European private-equity group GMT Communications Partners, bought out a 70 percent share of Bigpoint.[3] NBCU has featured some of Bigpoint's games on the websites of some of its cable channels.[4]

On April 26, 2011, TA Associates and Summit Partners invested $350 million into Bigpoint to become the majority shareholders. Previous shareholders Comcast Interactive Capital’s Peacock Equity Fund sold their holdings in this transaction. GMT Communications Partners and GE sold a majority of their stakes. Hubertz retained his existing ownership stake in the company.[5]
