EA In Montreal Now
Electronic Arts officially launched its Montreal, Canada-based studio yesterday and said that the unit’s hiring and developmental initiatives were “running ahead of schedule.” Plans call for the studio to spread out to 25,000 square feet in its “first phase,” and to have 70 developers in place by the summer time. Currently 40 full-time employees are on staff and the creation of three new action-adventure games at the studio is underway. "We have found a home in the heart of Montreal that we expect will be the source of great game content for many years to come," said Alain Tascan, EA Montreal's VP and studio general manager.
