Calling this list the Washington DC list is a bit misleading, as almost none of the studios are actually located within the District. The surrounding area, however, is another story. There are several large companies in the metro area – EA has a presence (Mythic), and ZeniMax Media is headquartered here.
We have separated out studios in and around Baltimore, which will receive its own list. There are also several defense and simulation companies in the area, which we have not included in our list.
There is an active IGDA chapter servicing the DC game development community.
