USA Network and the SCI FI Channel are getting ready for a blitz of online games coming
their way from Bigpoint. Peacock Equity Fund, which includes NBC Universal, recently bought a majority stake in the German game producer and are planning to distribute their browser-based, free-to-play titles on network sites.
Previously planned titles, including a game based on the hit series Next Top Model
, are still in the works. Bigpoint is also expanding across Europe through partnerships with MTV Networks International
to promote their 26 browser games to users in nearly a dozen countries. They also offer a handful of downloadable games
and a veritable plethora of mini games
to over 43 million registered users.
