We are a global team of creators, storytellers, technologists, experience originators, innovators and so much more. We believe amazing games and experiences start with teams as diverse as the players and communities we serve. At Electronic Arts, the only limit is your imagination.

We are a global team and the largest studio within EA! Studios Technology Group (STG) is one of several teams within C&D.
