Gearbox Opens New Studio in Quebec


Despite closing studios in Australia and China, Gearbox has now opened up a new studio in Quebec.

Gearbox Software, the folks behind the Borderlands franchise has just opened up a new studio in Quebec, Canada. It’s currently hiring 16 new positions for “its inaugural title growing to full AAA production capability through 2016.”

“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,” said Gearbox president Randy Pitchford.

This is certainly some great news for Gearbox and parent company 2K, which recently shuttered studios in both China and Australia.

The new studio will be co-headed by creative director Pierre-Andre Dery and director of operations Sebastien Caisse. “Thanks to Randy and his gifted team in Texas, we are designing a truly unique studio from the ground up in order to enhance Gearbox’s ability to entertain the world with best-selling, larger than life experiences,” said Caisse. “To be able work for such a storied independent game studio as Gearbox is a great honour.”
