New branch headed up by former Activision art director

Gearbox Software opens new Quebec studio

The Borderlands developer has opened a brand new studio in Quebec, and is now hiring for a new triple-A project.

The studio will be headed up by Pierre-Andre Dery, formerly art director at Activision. Throughout his career Dery has worked on more than 30 console hits, including Skylanders, The Amazing Spider-Man, Far Cry and Deus Ex.

Initial production has begun on Gearbox Quebec’s first title, and it is currently hiring for a range of positions, including animators, artists, game designers, producers, programmers and more.

You can find full details at the studio’s website.

“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.”
