Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) March 3, 2007
bitHeads Inc., a leading software product development outsourcing company, announces that it has formed a new division, named HeadGames ™, to build on the company's early success in helping game studios and middleware companies accelerate time to market. The official launch is being announced today in San Francisco at the Game Developers Conference and in Ottawa, where bitHeads is giving a keynote address at the OCRI Technology Showcase Conference.
"We have three major customer segments: VoIP/communications; enterprise software and game technology," states Scott Simpson, bitHeads CEO. "We have seen strong growth in demand for our services in all three areas, with particularly strong growth in the games industry where we have projects currently underway that will generate over $8 million in revenue this year alone. We're launching the new HeadGames division to provide us the organizational focus and alignment with the entertainment-industry culture we need to grow our game industry business even more rapidly."
"Game studios face severe cost and time-to-market pressures," continues Simpson. "Only 15% of games become profitable and average development costs have skyrocketed to over $20 million for a new AAA game. We're very proud of our track record as the behind-the-scenes partner that helps companies deal with those pressures and reduce business risk. Also, our expertise in building large scale frameworks, transaction systems, special-purpose development tools and communications systems is proving to be very valuable as next-generation games incorporate requirements for those technologies."
