With Sebastien and Pierre-Andre’s leadership, I know the incredible local game development community will welcome Gearbox Studio Montreal and its balance between major studio muscle and local team culture as a needed addition to the city.”Gearbox Montreal has already advertised a plethora of job opportunities, suggesting that the developer has hit the ground running. According to its website, the studio wants to “maintain the balance between ambitious projects, a human-sized team and self-realization.”“Building on Gearbox’s long history of creative freedom, we are excited to assemble a new development team to work on the Borderlands franchise and create new IP in Montreal,” Dery added in the press release.Gearbox’s new IP is still under wraps. The company was recently acquired by Sweden’s Embracer Group.
