Creative & Development is an organization within the Central Technology Organization. CDT partners with studios to build creative tools and solutions for our game makers and our players. The multi-disciplinary Player & Quality Insights team focuses on understanding player behavior and designing player feedback events across our entire portfolio of games, to help game teams develop the games and experiences our players want to play. We are a player-inspired team where every major decision starts with who we make games for.
