I would check Florida for openings, as well as Atlanta knowing it's a very close big city. however, here's the top cities for this position
With 108 studios in total, London takes the cake. Options abound, with studios from the Namco Europe office to the indie Payload Studios.

2. San Francisco
Weighing in at a solid 107 studios, San Francisco takes second place. There’s nothing quite like designing games to a beautiful bay view. If this is your choice, here’s a handy guide to nicknames for the city.
You might’ve guessed that you’d see Tokyo somewhere on this global list of game developer hotbeds. At third place with 101 studios, it doesn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for a dense city in an island nation, this is your spot!
The city of hazelnut spreads and romance, where the only flakes are found on perfectly-baked pastries. Well, we can’t really speak to the abundance or lack of flakes in Paris, but we can tell you there are around 85 game studios.
Back to the states, this time taking a scenic southern route. Austin Texas places 5th on our list with about 74 videogame-oriented studios to look into.
