BioWare

Soon after graduating as medical doctors, Ray Muzyka, Greg Zeschuk, and Augustine Yip founded BioWare as a game development studio in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In 2008, Electronic Arts acquired the company.

Activision

Considered the world’s first independent developer and distributor of console video games, Activision is now a publicly traded international corporation that is majority controlled by Vivendi.

Animation Director

Just as the art director ensures quality and a consistent aesthetic through the delivery of all art assets, the animation director is tasked with overseeing the staff of animators who work in video game development.

Game Producer

What a producer does can be a mystery to those outside a project, in any segment of the entertainment industry. Essentially, producers are leaders and facilitators who keep their entire team on the ball. In game development, the producer of a game is responsible for ensuring that the product is delivered on time, on budget, and with as few headaches as possible.

Mission Designer

Every hero needs a mission—to save the princess, to capture the bad guy, to lead a team of post-apocalyptic survivors against a rabid population of mutant vampire zombie soldiers. The options are endless, and it is the job of a mission designer to understand how these scenarios will translate into interesting gameplay and design accordingly. Mission designers determine the objectives within a level, as well as how the game’s storyline and gameplay mechanics are tied to the overall progression of the player.

Rockstar Games

Since Rockstar Games’ inception, they have been best known for their ultraviolent, highly interactive game titles, most notably the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Rockstar is based in New York City, with 10 studios across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
