Gearbox Software opens new Quebec City office to expand game development

Gearbox Software, the PC-Xbox One-PlayStation 4 developer behind games like the Brothers in Arms and Borderlands series, is adding a second office in Quebec City, Quebec. While the developer has worked with other independent studios to help complete games in the past, this represents Gearbox's first major expansion.

The announcement included a quote from Gearbox's founder Randy Pitchford:

"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 Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. "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 says their new Quebec City office is working on an unnamed game project. At the moment, the only officially announced game from Gearbox is Battleborn, the MOBA-like team shooter that's due for release in May 2016.

This news comes just a few days after Fallout 4 developer Bethesda Game Studios announced it was opening its own second location, this time in Montreal.
