BioWare Opens New Montreal Branch for Mass Effect 2

Gamasutra has learned that BioWare is opening a new studio located within EA Montreal to contribute to the development of Mass Effect 2.

BioWare will hire thirty employees to fill out the new division.

"We'll be working together with our friends at EA Montreal," said BioWare co-founder Ray Muzyka. "There's a great studio here continuing full-force with a whole bunch of really cool, exciting things as well."

Muzyka added that the new resources will not affect any existing BioWare projects, including "a couple unannounced projects... really cool future stuff."
