The new studio in Montreal is led by Rainbow Six Siege developers.
Amazon Games launched a new game development studio in Montreal, Canada. The Montreal studio will be creating original AAA games. Amazon Games is now hiring, and multiple roles are available.
"Montreal’s rich vein of creative talent will be a valuable asset as we continue building our development and publishing teams," said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. "The highly skilled and experienced team at our new Montreal studio shares our commitment to creating best-in-class online games, and brings with them a wealth of knowledge and passion for building deep, community-focused multiplayer experiences. I look forward to watching them invent on behalf of customers as they grow their team and develop their first project."
The studio has also hired industry veterans Luc Bouchard (head of production), Xavier Marquis (creative director), Alexandre Remy (head of product), and Romain Rimokh (content director), who worked on the tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege. The team is now working on an online multiplayer title based on the new IP.
"Building upon 8 years of experience with Siege, we are excited to start with a blank page and the creative freedom to create a completely unique experience in the multiplayer space," said Xavier Marquis, Creative Director.
"From our first discussion, we felt a true connection with the people at Amazon Games, their approach to gaming and the sheer amount of knowledge, expertise and technology available there. It is quite humbling and we couldn’t be more excited to start a studio with them."
