Keywords expands North America HQ in Montreal

Services provider Keywords Studios is expanding its North American HQ based in Montreal as it prepares for a hiring spree.

The company plans to invest $1.1 million on the 17,000 square foot expansion, which will include additional workstations and a new common area.

In total Keywords has 75,000 square feet of office space in the city and now has a further 10-year lease on its Montreal HQ.

Continued growth

The firm said the expansion means the office will become a “single end-to-end solution” provider for its global customer-base. Currently the Montreal team focuses on QA, localisation, player support and UI/UX research.

Keywords said it now has the second largest games studio in Montreal, a city also home to Ubisoft.

“We look forward to continuing Keywords Studios’ growth within such a creative and innovative community for games makers here in Montreal,” said Keywords Studios Americas MD Nicolas Liorzou.

“Importantly, this provides our staff with a superior fit-for-purpose work environment, as we will now have more capacity than ever to solidify our vision for the future of games development.”

Keywords has been on a significant acquisition spree over the last few years since it went public. Recently it expanded its audio services with the purchase of Cord Worldwide, Laced Music and Maximal.
