Electronic Arts (EA), one of the biggest video game companies in the world, will be opening a new studio next to the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA) in downtown Orlando. FIEA has been located in the downtown Creative Village district for 14 years. EA Tiburon, the Orlando based studio, with the globally recognized Madden NFL Football franchise, has committed to moving all of its Florida operations and over 700 employees to the studio opening in 2021. EA Tiburon currently employs over 100 FIEA graduates and has over a dozen interns currently finishing their FIEA master’s degree at the company. The University of Central Florida and FIEA are excited to see the EA studio joining us in the Creative Village. It’s a game changer for all our students and graduates.
