The hires since last August form a sizeable expansion of producers, programmers, testers, artists, animators, designers and more, as per LinkedIn profile information cited in the report.

Warzone Developer Raven Software Has Grown By Almost 50% In The Last Year - Report

Among the new hires is Far Cry 6's game director, Ted Timmins, Respawn's lead animator Manuel Torres Pineda, and senior producer on Fortnite, William Fine.

Raven had traditionally operated as a support studio since 2010, working alongside the likes of Sledgehammer Games, Infinity Ward, and Treyarch on annual Call of Duty franchise titles.

VGC also notes that a company photograph in 2015 suggests the studio has doubled in size since then, and with 41 open positions it could be growing even further.

A full list can be found in VGC's report and is well worth a look.

While Warzone has continued to grow, it's had plenty of issues with hackers - meaning there's every chance Raven continues to hire developers to work on fixing those vulnerabilities. The studio recently issued another 50,000 bans.
