French independent developer DONTNOD Entertainment, best known for Life is Strange, announced the opening of a new studio in Montréal, Canada.

This international expansion will allow the company to be closer to its North American players’ community, representing the studio’s main audience.

Responsible for a handful of video game successes like the Life is Strange saga, Vampyr, or Remember Me, DONTNOD has more than 250 employees in France. Thanks to this new North American entity, the studio will continue to grow and produce even more immersive, engaging and innovative video games.

“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.” said DONTNOD CEO Oskar Guilbert.

The establishment of this studio in the Quebec metropolis will be supported by a brand new project. To fill its ranks, DONTNOD will be hiring from Montréal’s renowned talent pool, which will naturally diversify the company’s culture and consequently its creations.
