Develop is partnering with Deep Silver as the momentum behind the Develop 100 continues to build.
The developer publisher has signed up as premium sponsor of the book.
Set to hit desks in the first week of May, the new Develop 100 ranks the world's studios based on the retail sales of their games.
"Since its formation in 2003 Deep Silver already has a publishing history of more than 100 games. Creating strong brands and releasing quality products are a cornerstones for Deep Silver's publishing business in the future," said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Deep Silver.
"We look forward to adding more partners to our already existing stock of talented developers and creating thrilling and successful products with them. It's therefore a great pleasure for us to be involved with this year’s Develop 100."
"Deep Silver is one of the few companies still looking to grow its development portfolio in 2010 so they are a perfect partner for the Develop 100," added Develop's publisher Stuart Dinsey.
"This is part of a wide-ranging partnership with the Develop brand which will raise the Deep Silver profile due to our ever growing international readership."
As the sponsor of the Develop 100, Deep Silver has put its name to the definitive guide for everyone in the games development sector, which outlines the key commercial achievements by studios around the globe.
