wooga Overtakes Playdom to Become Fourth in the World

Posted on April 12, 2011

After just twenty months on the market, wooga has reached over twenty million active users per month. Three weeks ago we celebrated becoming number five – and today we level up on the games leader board once more. Now wooga is number four among social game developers according to Facebook metrics service Appdata.

“Capturing 20 million active Users in just 20 months and surpassing Playdom to become number four in the world is a stunning accomplishment. We will remain focused on producing high quality games with a unique game experience for the future. With our ambitious team, we aim to become number two by the end of this year”
Jens Begemann, Founder & CEO

wooga overtook the US developer Playdom last week. Playdom was acquired by Disney eight months ago and has more than 300 employees. wooga’s focused team of 70 employees is entirely located in our Berlin headquarters. Our comparatively small team is enthusiastic about creating a unique gaming experience.

In the past three months, we have overtaken Digital Chocolate, PopCap, Rock You! and now Playdom.
wooga is striving to become the second largest developer of social games on Facebook by the end this year.

Our users are more than just numbers, and their enthusiasm gives us the confidence to play on… and challenge Silicon Valley from the creative capital of Europe.
