Dallas: A hotspot for the video game industry
Texas has played a key role in the video game industry since the 1980s and remains a hub for game development and digital media production today. We are proud to be part of the vibrant Dallas-area game development community, one that has long been one of the largest in the nation.
Dallas became a hub for PC gaming in the 1990s with studios like Id Software, 3D Realms and Ensemble Studios, and has been the development home to studios making some of the industry's top-selling games since.

With a rich gaming environment nearby and a vibrant network of industry partners across the world, we're able to actively partner and work closely each academic year with a variety of studios and professionals to enhance our learning environment.
