Continuing its charge into the gaming market, Amazon has founded a Montreal studio with leading developers from Ubisoft’s “Rainbow Six Siege.”

Founded by four developers behind “Rainbow Six Siege,” which has built more than 70 million players, the Montreal studio adds to Amazon Games’ development centers in Seattle, Orange County and San Diego, Calif.

“Montreal's rich vein of creative talent will be a valuable asset as we continue building our development and publishing teams,” says Christoph Hartmann, vice president, Amazon Games. “The highly skilled and experienced team at our new Montreal studio shares our commitment to creating best-in-class online games and brings with them a wealth of knowledge and passion for building deep, community-focused multiplayer experiences. I look forward to watching them invent on behalf of customers as they grow their team and develop their first project.”

According to Amazon Games, the studio's first project will be an online multiplayer title based on new IP.

“Building upon eight years of experience with Siege, we are excited to start with a blank page and the creative freedom to create a completely unique experience in the multiplayer space,” says Xavier Marquis, creative director, Amazon Games Montreal.

Since the launch of Amazon Games, the brand has announced the development of titles based on The Lord of The Rings and is currently rolling out new IP “New Worlds” across PC.
