Room 8 Studio opening Montreal location

Ukrainian co-development outfit begins global expansion with first North American outpost

Room 8 Studio is expanding into North America with the opening of Room 8 Studio Canada in Montreal, the co-development company announced today.

The new office is the first of several parent company Room 8 Group (which also includes Dragon's Lake Entertainment) is expecting to open in the next two years.

"As we continue our exponential growth, we are opening up new offices in gaming hubs all over the world to provide our partners with more regionally based best-in-class development and management services," Room 8 Group chairman Sviatoslav Pohrebnoi said.

Heading up the Montreal studio in the position of general manager and executive producer will be Matthew Zoern, whose decades of work in the industry have included stints at Nutaku Publishing, Nvizzio Creations, Funcom Games Canada, and Electronic Arts.

"Montreal is a haven for game development," Zoern said. "It is strategically located to better serve North America and is in close proximity to Europe. It offers very friendly business incentives. And it possesses a world-class, highly sought-after community of uber talented studios, developers, and creatives and we are excited to be a part of this thriving community."
