The metropolitan Baltimore area, especially when considered with nearby Washington D.C., has a respectable number of video games studios and developers. The city has seen a few major developers close (Big Huge Games) or leave the area (Zynga), but it also is home to a few big AAA studios – Firaxis and ZeniMax are both long-time residents. Here is our list of game studios in the Baltimore area. We’ve got more information below the studio list!
