Chicago, IL, February 1, 2022 - Today, Iron Galaxy Studios, a leading independent video game developer that recently revealed an all-new IP Rumbleverse, a free-to-play, 40-person Brawler Royale being published by Epic Games, announced that it has been awarded a Top Workplaces USA 2022 honor.

Our goal is that staff view Iron Galaxy as a place they want to retire from, and we will continue to focus on ensuring staff feel supported and connected throughout the pandemic.”
