Video Game Grad Matyas Dudas Lands Programming Job at People Can Fly Studio

Matyas Dudas

Class of 2023 grad Matyas Dudas landed a job at People Can Fly Studio – a global video game development company known as one of the leading Unreal Engine studios in the industry – right after graduating from the Video Game Design & Development program last fall.

Since November, Dudas has been working full time as a game programmer at the studio, working on an “unannounced but reputable big IP”.

“Through hard work, dedication, and support from my teachers, I managed to land this AAA job right after school,” Dudas said of working at People Can Fly, whose titles include Bulletstorm: Full Clip, Gears of War: Judgment, Bulletstorm, Outriders and the award-winning Painkiller.

Dudas said that, ever since he was a child growing up in Hungary, he’s always wanted to work in video games – a lofty ambition he was able to turn into his reality thanks to his studies at Toronto Film School.

“Where I am from, it wasn’t a valid career to pursue; hence, I came to Canada to make my dreams come true,” he said.

“Attending TFS has been the most rewarding step in this journey. I learned so much about becoming an industry professional programmer – from writing simple programs, to graduating with a fully networked multiplayer TPS game in C++.

“It has been an incredible journey, and all my thanks go out to my dedicated teachers and peers.”
