Bethesda has opened a new development studio in Montreal, Quebec, the publisher has announced.
The new studio will be focusing on console, PC, and mobile gaming. It has initially been made up of 40 members of staff, who branch across both the console and mobile side of gaming. It is being led by studio developer Yves Lachance, who previously worked on Wolfenstein: The New Order and Fallout Shelter.
“Our collaboration with Bethesda Game Studios has been an exhilarating and memorable journey already,” said Lachance. “We are thrilled to be launching the studio in Montreal and contributing our city’s great game-making talent to the kind of games that Bethesda Game Studios is known for.”
“We’ve worked with some very talented developers in Montreal for a long time, and decided it was time to open a studio there,” added Todd Howard, Game Director and Executive Producer at Bethesda. “It’s exciting to think about the new games we’ll be building together.”
There is no information currently regarding what specific projects the new studio will be undertaking, however Bethesda are currently hiring for both their new Montreal studio and its studio in Maryland.
