EA opens new Utah-based studio
EA’s announced the opening of its brand new studio in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The studio, which houses up to 100 employees, will focus on its licenced games with Hasbro, such as Monopoly, Littlest Pet Shop and Nerf via the EA Play label.
“We’re honored to stand elbow-to-elbow with Utah Government officials as we show off our new studio in Salt Lake City,” said Jon Dean, executive producer at the studio.
“As a company that takes great pride in its people and the amazing video games they create, today’s open house celebrates all of that hard work with the team and their families with fun activities from studio tours to game demos and art projects for the kids.”
“This move means we were able to build a state-of-the-art facility that fits the development studio needs, while also allowing our employees to work out of a more convenient location in downtown Salt Lake,” further added SVP of EA’s Hasbro division, Chip Lange.
“We’re hopeful that EA’s growing commitment and investment in the Salt Lake area will accelerate the region’s development into one of the industry’s hottest game development centers.”
