Millions of enthusiastic players
Whether it’s football managers, magical plant breeders or railway entrepreneurs

Together in Games
Bright Future GmbH was founded in Cologne at the beginning of 2006 for the development of the FIFA Manager series. We decided quickly to follow our passion and develop more addictive games. Since 2012, we have been part of the Munich-based Travian Games family as an external development studio.
Browser Games at Bright Future
While our roots lie in the development of EA SPORTS' FIFA Manager series, today we create successful browser games that are particularly characterized by large communities and cooperative player interaction. Rail Nation and Miramagia are wonderful examples of this - they have already inspired more than 5 million players since their release.
