Oh Canada! Bethesda Game Studios, the American company behind Fallout and Skyrim, has just announced that it’s opening a new location in Montreal, Quebec.

The studio is looking to further expand into mobile gaming (after the highly successful Fallout Shelter app), as well as expand its development capacity in console and PC.

“We’ve worked with some very talented developers in Montreal for a long time, and decided it was time to open a studio there,” said Todd Howard, Game Director and Executive Producer at Bethesda. “It’s exciting to think about the new games we’ll be building together.”

The Montreal studio already has a team of over 40 developers, and will be managed by Yves Lachance.

“Our collaboration with Bethesda Game Studios has been an exhilarating and memorable journey already,” said Lachance. “We are thrilled to be launching the studio in Montreal and contributing our city’s great game-making talent to the kind of games that Bethesda Game Studios is known for.”

Bethesda is currently hiring for its Montreal location, as well as its original Maryland studio.
