Blue Byte Studio GmbH


Blue Byte is a game developer based in Düsseldorf, Germany. The company was founded in October 1988 in Mülheim by Thomas Hertzler and Lothar Schmitt, both former employees of Rainbow Arts. Blue Byte debuted with Pro Tennis Tour / Great Courts, before moving towards the Battle Isle and The Settlers strategy games for which they were most famed. Their original focus was the Amiga until 1994, when they switched their focus towards the PC.

Blue Byte opened several divisions for publishing, distribution and additional development: The company's fortunes wavered in the late 1990s, and they were absorbed by Ubi Soft in 2001.
