Gearbox-bossen Randy Pitchford säger såhär: "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."
Kanada-studion kommer att ledas av både Pierre-Andre Dery och Sebastien Caisse. Dery har tidigare arbetat med spel som Skylanders, Deus Ex och World of Warcraft medan Caisse har arbetat med både Sony och Microsoft i hans tidigare position som business development director hos Quebecor Media.
Caisse säger: "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. To be able work for such a storied independent game studio as Gearbox is a great honour."
