Digital Bros revealed it has opened a new videogame development studio in Quebec City, founded by veteran developers from Ubisoft, Activision, and others.

Nesting Games is a new videogame studio opening in Quebec City founded by veteran and expert developers such as Christian Guertin, Cyrielle Barreteau, James Mittag, Sandra Jackson, Ramiro Belanger, Carolane Bruneau, Pierre Paradis, Renaud Lessard Larouche, Sherwin Barraquio...

The team is extremely experienced, with major successes on their resume such as Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, Borderlands, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, Batman… Together, they've accumulated over 300 years of experience in the videogame industry and are responsible for hundreds of millions of games being sold during their careers.

Nesting Games aims at being a modern studio with modern values including:


And most importantly:

Inclusivity, which includes diversity in our team and in our games, but also accessibility options that are part of our initial design process.

We also want to break the trend of overtime in the industry by having a strong vision, great technology, mature management and decision making, and proper planning.

Furthermore, Nesting Game supports full or partial remote work for any employee that wishes it, meaning that you can potentially work for us from anywhere in the world.

The studio is fully funded with Digital Bros as the co-owner of this new studio.

“We are extremely grateful to be co-owner of Nesting Games and collaborating with extremely experienced and visionary developers. Quebec city is a new hub of the video game industry, one where we trust Nesting Games will be able to create exceptional games with the complete creative freedom Digital Bros offers them,” commented Digital Bros owners Rami and Raffi Galante.

Based in Quebec City, Nesting Games is creating a fully original, AAA, single-player RPG with a strong narrative focus, based on a new IP.

"We want to go back to creating RPGs that are focused on immersion, great characters, powerful storytelling, and strong gameplay. We are moving away from the “massive open world” model, full of icons to clean up, and returning to experiences that are content-driven and ultimately respect the player’s time. Whether you play our games for a 30-minutes or 2 hour session, what you will get is always interesting content and a gratifying experience. Digital Bros is the perfect partner to achieve this, as they give us full creative freedom in order to create a fully original IP and deliver an exceptional single-player RPG,” said Nesting Games CCO Jordane Thiboust.

“We are blessed to have Digital Bros as co-owner of the studio, as it allows us to fast-track our studio life cycle. We’ve felt from day one that we were part of the family of Digital Bros. On top of this, our open and collaborative recruitment has helped us build a full roster of incredible talent to build our game. This process will help us deliver the strong values upon which our studios are founded," added Nesting Games COO Frederic Brassard.
