Bethesda Game Studios is opening a new office in Montreal, Quebec. The new studio is intended to expand Bethesda's current development capabilities in "console, PC, and mobile gaming."Todd Howard, Bethesda Game Studio's executive producer, said Bethesda has worked with "very talented developers" in Montreal for quite some time, and the company "decided it was time to open a studio there."
The studio will be managed by Yves Lachance. Lachance worked with Behavior Interactive, the studio behind the iOS and Android versions of Fallout tie-in Fallout Shelter.
Lachance said he is "thrilled" to be opening an office in Montreal and "contributing our city’s great game-making talent" to help develop future Bethesda games.
Fallout 4, Bethesda's most recent game release, launched on November 12 and sold 12 million units, according to the company. In its first three days alone, 1.87 million digital copies of Fallout 4 were downloaded across PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
