Not even a week after Bethesda announced they would be opening a studio in Montreal, we get news that Gearbox Software is opening a new studio in Quebec City.
Gearbox Studio Quebec is now hiring game developers to join them in Quebec City to start production on AAA titles.
“We are fortunate that there is a lot of demand on us to deliver our brand of interactive entertainment within the powerful franchises we have at Gearbox Software and the challenge for us is growing to meet this demand,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “As part of our strategy we have already successfully built an expanded all new headquarters in Frisco, Texas . We now look ahead to another key and exciting step which is our commitment towards our all-new Gearbox Studio Quebec where we strive to team up with some incredible talent in the world of video game development outside of Texas to help us build fun and exciting video games within our tent-pole brands.”
Gearbox has been in Texas for 16 years and has in the past, partnered with many companies over the years to bring us an assortment of titles.
Gearbox Quebec City will be headed by Sebastien Caisse, PhD, as co-studio head and director of operations, and Pierre-Andre Dery as co-studio head and creative director.
