A new Deck13 development studio to open in Montréal!
Focus Home Interactive, a leading French video game publisher, is announcing that its development studio Deck13 will open a subsidiary in Montréal.
Deck13 became Focus Home Interactive’s first development studio in July 2020. The German-based studio specializes in creating original universes and action games with visceral and spectacular combat mechanics (Lords of the Fallen, The Surge 1 & 2). It has been working for several months on an ambitious new project slated for worldwide release in 2022. The Montréal team of Deck13 will initially be dedicated to the development of this high-potential title.
“Montréal is a great breeding ground for creative talent and a catalyst for technological innovation,” said Mathias Reichert, Managing Director of Deck13. “Opening a subsidiary in Canada is a logical continuation in the history and internal development of our studio. Deck13 Studio Montréal will allow us to strengthen our knowledge and integrate new visions, cultures and know-how that will undoubtedly take the studio to the next level.”
“The creation of a Focus Home Interactive studio in Montréal, Canada, is a key stop in our desire to develop the Focus brand while supporting our studios and partners in their growth and ambitions. Deck 13 studio is a historical partner and, with this addition, an integral part of our ambitious project. This subsidiary is the symbol of our desire to integrate new talent and skills and demonstrates our high standards and determination to always seek quality and innovation that will allow us to offer unique gaming experiences to players,” declared Christophe Nobileau, Chairman of the Management Board of Focus Home Interactive.
