People Can Fly Opens New Studio in Montreal

People Can Fly has announced the opening of a new studio in Montreal, Canada.

The studio will work on an original triple-A project which has been in development for several years at People Can Fly’s New York office.

Billed as a “highly ambitious, groundbreaking action-adventure title”, the project is being led by creative director Roland Lesterlin and studio head David Grijns.

Lesterlin previously directed Just Cause 3 at Avalanche New York, while Grijns served as the game’s executive producer.

“Montreal’s amazing atmosphere and well-seasoned gamedev industry make this project extremely exciting for us,” People Can Fly said. “We believe that PCF Montreal will soon play a major role in our studios’ portfolio.”

People Can Fly, known for games like Gears of War: Judgment, Bulletstorm, and Outriders, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2022. It was owned by Epic Games from 2012-2015.

The Warsaw-headquartered company currently has eight projects in the works, with four studios in Poland and one in Newcastle, England.

Last month, People Can Fly signed a deal with Xbox Game Studios to develop a new title. The project, codenamed Project Maverick, will be fully funded by IP owner Microsoft and is set to have a budget of $30-50 million.
