EA has announced that it will formally open the doors of its new video game development studio based in the heart of Salt Lake City. To commemorate this occasion, EA hosted Utah Governor Gary Herbert, along with several Utah state and local government officials at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony inside the new facility.

The highly talented EA Salt Lake Studio has been responsible for producing several top-selling family-friendly video game franchises under the EA Play Label, including Monopoly, Littlest Pet Shop and Nerf. Senior VP of EA’s Hasbro Division commented “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.”

The new custom facility has been specifically designed to promote the creation of innovative video game content. The EA Salt Lake Studio houses 100 employees across a wide range of industry disciplines including engineering, design, project management, marketing, production, audio, art and animation. Previously, EA had maintained a facility in Bountiful, Utah since 2006. That office has closed with the move of the entire staff to the new Salt Lake City Studio. Currently, EA Salt Lake is developing Monopoly Streets and Littlest Pet Shop 3: Biggest Stars for release later this year.
