Who would have thought that a game franchise like Talking Tom and Friends would serve as the foundation of what is now a global family entertainment company? With Outfit7 Limited celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the developer revealed that its game library has reached a total of 10 billion downloads, cementing its place as one of the world's top ten mobile gaming publishers.

It was back in 2009 when a team of eight entrepreneurs made the decision to make mobile games. From My Talking Tom, the company has since released games like Talking Tom Gold Run, My Talking Angela, and even Talking Tom Hero Dash. Some of these games have entered the top ten charts in at least 100 countries. With the highly successful My Talking Tom 2 released in 2018, the company then became the leading publisher when it comes to Tamagotchi-style mobile games. While the company was founded in Slovenia, it was later bought by Chinese company Zhejiang Jinke Entertainment Culture.

In a press statement, CEO Xinyu Qian said that it was exciting to think that a whole generation of people grew up with Talking Tom and they have managed to connect with people around the world by giving them excitement, friendship, and fun. Qian went on to say that it has been an amazing decade "with so much growth and so many humbling accomplishments, but we're not slowing down anytime soon."

As it enters a new decade of business, Outfit7 revealed that it is entering a new phase. The first move is to release a bigger and better virtual friend game that is going to further cement its reputation as the leader of this genre. The franchise is also all set to introduce a new character with Talking Becca who will make her debut in Season 4 of the Talking Tom and Friends animated series. The company is also preparing to announce an upcoming release that is expected to be different from its usual offerings. This time the company is planning to release a team-based PvP arena game, but with a twist.

With many new adventures on the horizon, fans can expect the excitement to continue for years to come.
