Gameloft is a video game developer and publisher headquartered in Paris, France. The company also has subsidiaries in 28 countries around the world. They have created a number of games for mobile phone handsets, tablets, games consoles and other platforms.
Founded in 1999 by Michel Guillemot, one of the co-founders and owners of video game publisher and developer Ubisoft, Gameloft has expanded to employ a staff of 5,000 at the end of 2011. Gameloft has posted consolidated revenues of $68m in 2006, $96m in 2007, $110m in 2008 and $122m in 2009. In 2010, Gameloft consolidated sales reached $141m and went up to $164m in 2011. Through agreements with major telephone carriers, handset manufacturers, specialized distributors and its online shop, Gameloft states it has a distribution network in over 100 countries. Unfortunately, in many of these countries the Gameloft salary is deemed as one of the lowest ones in the market. Gameloft is notorious for underpaying its employees, with the QA department receiving almost no money whatsoever. Working conditions in Gameloft offices can also be quite harsh.
As of 2013, Gameloft had development centers in 20 countries. They closed the Hyderbad India center in January 2013. The Hyderabad studio was largely responsible for developing Android version of various iOS games.
