Overview edit · view history

Black Hole Entertainment was a Budapest based video game developer.

The company was founded in 2001 by Hollywood producer Andrew G. Vajna and seven game-enthusiasts. These founders are professional programmers and designers, but some of them also contribute their professional talents in various fields such as physics, mathematics, economy and zoology.

Their goal was to make a real-time strategy game that would be superior to all others. After four years of development the team has created Armies of Exigo which was published by Electronic Arts at the end of 2004.

The team has developed Warhammer: Mark of Chaos and Warhammer: Battle March, an expansion for Mark of Chaos, which were released on November 14, 2006 and September 16, 2008, respectively, for the PC. Warhammer: Battle March was also released for the Xbox 360 game console on September 2, 2008.

Black Hole Entertainment developed the sixth installment of the Heroes of Might and Magic series, Might & Magic Heroes VI, in collaboration with Ubisoft. The title was released in October 2011, postponed from its original launch date of March. The studio was reported to have gone bankrupt as a result of the nature of this development.

As of July 2012, the company is no longer operating.
