Given its dynamic growth over the past few years, it’s probably not surprising that one of Team17’s flagship franchises is a strategy game.
Founded in 1990 and admitted to AIM in May 2018, Wakefield-based video games developer and publisher has been a constant innovator – in its content, its approach to development and in its business model. And that has been rewarded with record revenues and operating profits in its recent financial year.
The company has a roster of its own proprietary titles but also creates games in partnership with independent (“indie”) developers worldwide. It is focused on the premium – rather than free-to-play – area of the market and its portfolio currently comprises more than 100 games.
"We are not dependent on a particular title or platform," says CEO and co-founder Debbie Bestwick, "and we have an incredibly agile approach and are super-selective about the number of games that we sign up and develop."
