BBC unveils new video games for iOS devices

BBC unveils new video games for iOS devices BBC Worldwide has said today that their new move back into video games could eventually lead to £50 million a year for the media company.
The company went as far as to say the move is "like growing a new limb."

BBC has just revealed its first self-published games for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad, which include Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time, Top Gear: Stunt School and Teletubbies: My First App.

In 2009, the company explained its want to return to gaming, after a numerous year hiatus.

If the £50 million expected revenue is accurate, the gaming section will account for over 10 percent of the company's total revenue by 2012.

Says digital director Claude London (via MCV): "Games are massive in this. 1973 was the year we started out in our magazines business and it was as if we had a new limb, so why wouldn’t gaming be a £50m plus business for us over the next few years?"
