BioWare Montreal was built from the ground up to be a standalone studio.
Formed in 2009, BioWare Montreal went through a carefully managed growth process that allowed us to develop the unique culture that BioWare is known for. The first steps of this plan have been to partner closely with our Edmonton studio in developing Mass Effect, one of the industries most beloved and acclaimed franchises. The BioWare Montreal team crossed a major milestone when we announced that the creation of the next Mass Effect game will happen here, and we are very much looking forward to delivering a worthy and successful addition to the world-class franchise!
BioWare's Montreal studio is located in the heart of downtown, making it fast and easy to get to work by bus, metro, or bicycle. The city boasts some of the biggest festivals in Canada year round and is the cultural hub of Quebec. A variety of outdoor activities are also available to you—skiing, mountain biking, boating, hiking—and you can do it all in and around Montreal! The quality of the nightlife and food in this amazing city also goes without saying.
In the office, there is a staff library full of games, books, and movies. Every morning, a free breakfast is served, and when we're not making games, there are plenty of opportunities to play them.
