2022 TOP 5 VIDEO GAME STUDIOS IN THE US & CANADA
studios that recruited the most graduates in the last 5 years
A WIDE VARIETY OF MAJOR STUDIOS
The number of young graduates recruited in the United States since 2015 – encompassing all studios in the game sector combined – is more than three times that of Canada, which is not surprising given that the US population is nine times bigger.
The situation is quite different for the top ten recruiters in North America alone. In addition to the fact that there are as many studios in the US as there are in Canada, which is already telling in itself, Canada leads in hiring numbers with 54% of the total.
As for the studios themselves, Ubisoft, in Toronto and Montreal, takes first place in the North American Top 10 with 28% of recent hires. Electronic Arts, in both the US and Canada, comes in second with 25% of recent hires and Epic Games places third with 14% of recent hires. *
These three studios are the undisputed leaders in this ranking for both countries, with more than two-thirds of new graduates recruited in the video game industry since 2015.
* In order to remain within the framework of career integration, the turnover of the studios is not taken into account here.
