Quantic Dream, the maker of story-based games such as Detroit: Become Human, said today it is opening a new game studio in Montreal.

The studio’s leaders are game industry veterans Stéphane D’Astous (general manager) and Yohan Cazaux (gameplay director). They previously held roles at Square Enix and Ubisoft, respectively.

This is Quantic Dream’s first studio in North America, and it comes after the Paris-based company raised funding from NetEase in 2019. Quantic Dream has become a publisher of third-party games, and it also plans to publish its games on multiple platforms after creating exclusives (Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls) for Sony’s PlayStation consoles in the past.
