Beenox studio opens Call of Duty game studio in Montreal
Quebec City-based Beenox, which is a division of Activision Publishing and its parent Activision Blizzard, said it will be expanding its footprint in Quebec to include Montreal to support the growth of the franchise and additional ambitious projects.
This recruiting investment will seek to increase Beenox’s staff by more than 20% and is the studio’s second major expansion in less than two years under the leadership of Nour Polloni, Studio Head at Beenox. To date, the studio employs over 400 game development professionals, including more than 150 hired since last year alone.
“I am very excited to announce the arrival of a new Beenox studio location in Montreal,” said Polloni, in a statement. “We are counting on the city’s great diversity of talent to build a team that will allow us to broaden our creative perspective and bring even more diversity to our development.
This investment in Montreal is the next key step in our studio’s growth as we continue to support the creative ambitions across the Call of Duty franchise.
