Half Life/Portal developer crowned number one

Edge, the world’s most respected multi-format videogame brand, today announces Valve the winner of the very first Edge Developer Awards.

To coincide with its historic 250th issue, Edge has compiled a list of the best 50 development studios in the world today − crowning Valve, the maker of Half-Life, Team Fortress 2 and PC gaming platform Steam, number one.

The new annual Edge Developer Awards are judged by Edge’s renowned editorial team from among studios that have released games within the past couple of years, with a focus on their technical and creative abilities. Rather than ranking the studios by revenue, sales figures or average review scores, Edge looks at which has released the most involving and stimulating game worlds whether through visual, audio or game design, or those which engage with players the most.

Edge’s top five development studios are:

1. Valve (Half Life/Portal)
2. Mojang (Minecraft/Scrolls)
3. Nintendo EAD (Mario/The Legend of Zelda)
4. Platinum Games (Bayonetta/The Wonderful 101)
5. Naughty Dog (The Last of Us/Uncharted)

Alex Wiltshire, Editor of Edge, says: “Since our launch in September 1993, Edge has reported on and celebrated the creative culture of videogames. The Edge Developer Awards look to build on this tradition by shining a light on the very best of the best. Passionate gamers are always looking to the future and as the next generation consoles near, these are the development studios which are shaping that future the most.

“Valve is named our number one because it is driving the future like no other developer. It’s in control of its destiny, it empowers its fans, and it’s continually experimenting with new ways of selling games and ways to play with them. And all the while, the quality and ambition of its games are second to none.”

Doug Lombardi, Director of Marketing at Valve, says: “Edge has long been a leader in industry news and is one of the world’s most respected sources. As such, Valve is absolutely honoured to be named Edge’s Developer of the Year.”

Edge’s 250th issue − featuring all the top 50 development studios − is out on September 17 in print, on iOS through its award-winning fully interactive iPad edition and standard iPhone edition via Newsstand, and on Android via Google Play and Zinio.

The issue also includes a profile on Valve, taking an in-depth look at the studio with new behind-the-scenes photography and interviews with key personnel including CEO Gabe Newell and Jason Holtman, the lead behind the pioneering game platform Steam.
