The world of Gearbox Entertainment just got a little bit bigger.
The company behind the hit Borderlands franchise announced today that it’s opening a new studio in Quebec, under the name of Gearbox Studio Montreal. With it, 250 people will find jobs, bringing the studio’s overall count to just under 1,000 overall.
“The Gearbox Entertainment Company is ambitiously looking both internationally and domestically to grow our creative engine and meet the incredible demand our customers have for talent-crafted experiences with our intellectual property,” Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford said about the studio expansion.
The Quebec-based studio will work on Borderlands, though specifics weren’t given. A new IP is also reportedly in the cards, though it hasn’t been announced just yet. Pierre-Andre Dery and Sebastien Caisse, Ph.D., who helped create the first Quebec City expansion of the company in 2015, will once again assist to help this particular studio thrive.
“With Sébastien and Pierre-André’s leadership, I know the incredible local game development community will welcome Gearbox Studio Montreal and its balance between major studio muscle and local team culture as a needed addition to the city,” Pitchford added.
We certainly wish the team the best of luck!
