Big Ant Studios is an Australian video game development studio founded by CEO Ross Symons in 2001. Originally known as Bullant Studios, a specialist in the simulation-racing genre, the studio changed its name to Big Ant Studios in 2005 and has expanded its portfolio to include a wide variety of game genres on current and next-generation platforms. Some of the developer's most popular titles are Australian sporting titles such as the AFL Live series, Rugby League Live as well as Don Bradman Cricket 2014 which was released in late 2014. Located on the Southbank of Melbourne's Yarra river, it is one of Australia's largest and most experienced studios.

Big Ant Studios have released titles on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Portable, Wii, Game Boy Advance and Microsoft Windows.

In December 2012 Big Ant released Jetpack Joyride for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita users. This was the company's first ever "Freemium" game and one of the first to be allowed on the PlayStation Network.
