Edmonton's BioWare launches new team in Montreal

Posted by Rob Lewis

James Brightman of GameDaily is reporting that Edmonton-based Bioware is launching a new team in Montreal using the existing Electronics Arts Montreal studio.

GameDaily BIZ just got off the phone with EA's vp of communications, Jeff Brown, and BioWare co-founder and CEO Ray Muzyka, who revealed that BioWare is establishing a new BioWare Montreal group to work within the existing EA Montreal studio. Muzyka said that the team will be working on the highly anticipated Mass Effect sequel to start with.

He noted that the goal is to have around 30 people there and about half of the staff will be people brought in from BioWare's Edmonton studio location (many of these folks worked on Mass Effect), with the other half consisting of new hires from the great talent pool in the Montreal area. Those interested in applying should head over to careers.bioware.com.

Looks like EA CEO John Riccitiello is sticking to his plans and still investing in innovation and new IP. Not sure if Bioware is any less nervous though.
