In anticipation of the release of Borderlands 3, developer Gearbox Software has announced the opening of a new office in Quebec.
“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 Gearbox president Randy Pitchford. “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 Studio Quebec will be lead by Sebastien Caisse, who previously worked at Quebeco Media and Squeeze Animation.
Gearbox’s next big release will be the first person shooter Battleborn, which will come to PC May 3, 2016.
