DONTNOD Entertainment announced that it will open a new development studio in Montréal, Canada. This will be the first international expansion for the French-based developer in an effort to be closer to North America players, who represent the studio’s main audience.
Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DONTNOD, says: “We are delighted to share our plans of expansion with the opening of this new office in Montréal, completing the talented team working out of Paris. Our goal is to create video games as close as possible to our community’s expectations. With this new international team, we will be able to envision even more ambitious titles and keep writing wonderful stories for our players.”
DONTNOD is known for their narrative-driven adventure game where players make choices that weigh on the outcome of the story. The studio’s catalog includes Life is Strange, Vampyr, and Remember Me. Currently, the studio has 150 employees in France, which will grow with the launch of their new studio.
At this time, the studio is hiring for the new Canadian studio so if you’re a developer in the area then this might be a future job prospect.
