Montreal - Eidos Interactive, a publisher and developer of entertainment software, announced the official opening of EIDOS-Montreal, its brand new development studio in the heart of downtown Montréal.
Celebrating the unveiling of the new studio, EIDOS-Montreal invited media, partners, and industry stakeholders to take an exclusive tour of the cutting-edge facility. Executives from the new studio also announced during a news conference the exciting new project that will be driven by the new studio: the development of Deus Ex 3, the highly anticipated next instalment to the award-winning AAA franchise.
EIDOS-Montreal continues to look for talented and enthusiastic developers. The goal is to fill 100 positions before the end of 2007 and a total of 350 positions by 2009. This represents a significant investment package in the booming Montréal technology community.
"We offer staff an alternative to the traditional 'big studio' working environment. Our Montréal facility offers a unique, fun and relaxed setting where people can realize their full potential and push the boundaries of game development. We wanted to invite our guests to see for themselves why EIDOS-Montreal is such a great place to work," says Stéphane D'Astous.
To thank Montreal for its generosity, EIDOS-Montreal is opening its doors to the public. People are invited to drop-by the new studio on Saturday, December 1, from 10 AM to 5 PM and witness gaming passion first-hand.
