Activision’s commitment to Call of Duty continues, as Activision-owned studio Beenox is forming a new studio in Montreal, Quebec. This new studio will mainly focus on supporting Call of Duty, alongside working on “additional ambitious projects,” though it’s unclear what those are.
Beenox’s new studio will allow for a 20% staff increase, as stated in a press release (via GameSpot). There's numerous jobs available and it seems they'll be working on content for the Call of Duty: Warzone mobile port, which got announced earlier this month.
Activision and Beenox Announce New Call of Duty-Focused Studio in Montreal
Call of Duty continues to be a huge success for Activision, with Call of Duty Mobile, Warzone, and the traditional annual releases making high profits. With Warzone coming to mobile, it'll be interesting to see just how this version differs from console and PC.
The mobile version of Warzone doesn’t have a release date yet, but fans can pick it up now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A next-gen edition of Warzone for PS5 and Xbox Series X has also been rumoured but for now, it's available via backwards compatibility.
