Josh Resnick is an American video game producer. He was the co-founder and president of the now defunct game developer Pandemic Studios. Pandemic Studios and its sister company, Bioware, were purchased by Electronic Arts in 2008 for $620 million. After Pandemic's game Mercenaries 2: World in Flames received bad reviews and poor sales, Electronic Arts shut down the company.
Before founding Pandemic, Resnick spent four years at Activision as a producer. His credits there include MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat (1995), which sold over 1 million copies worldwide, and Dark Reign (1997), a successful RTS game. Resnick also led the strategy division of Activision's product development department, which produced Battlezone (1998).
