Online Gaming Company Bigpoint Appoints New CEO In The Face Of Industry ?Transition?
Bigpoint, the European free-to-play online gaming company that is thought to have raised $460 million since 2002, is finally announcing a new CEO. Khaled Helioui, formerly Bigpoint?s Chief Games Officer, is taking over the role, some four months after founder Heiko Hubertz announced he would be stepping down. The change comes as Bigpoint, like other online gaming companies such as EA and Zynga, faces a wave of challenges, the biggest being market saturation and trying to drum up loyal gamers from a savvy but fickle user base.
