Bioware Montreal planning a big expansion

Studio to grow to 150 by 2014

Bioware is planning to double its Montreal workforce over the next three years.

The studio is to grow based on its successful contribution to the development of Mass Effect 2.

The studio is expecting to grow from 27 to 55 staff this year as it gears up to begin early production work on Mass Effect 3.

The studio is hoping to grow to 150 staff in three years time. Bioware's Yannick Roy explained: "Now that we've proven ourselves and shown that we can be successful, we're taking the next step. We're also doubling our contribution to whatever happens next in the Mass Effect franchise."
