Facebook has recently created a dedicated gaming support team for the European region, but browser-game publisher BigPoint wants others to realize there are other platforms available.

“We would counsel the industry to not become blinkered by this move by Facebook, and decide that Facebook is the only platform to develop for. Although Facebook is a fantastic platform, at BigPoint we believe that it should only be considered as one route to market,” BigPoint CEO Heiko Hubertz told GI.biz. “As Facebook themselves say, as a gaming platform they are only getting started, and so we would advise all European games developers to investigate multiple routes and platforms to give their game the best chance of success.”
