Japanese developer CyberConnect2 have opened their new website for the previously announced Montreal studio they are planning to open in the Canadian town, as part of their global expansion.
They are hiring several positions with the goal of making a AAA title with “photorealistic visuals” and are targeting development in Unreal Engine 4. Positions up for grabs including game designers, engine programmer, character model artists, animation engineers and a multitude of other positions.
They also left an introduction and message on their newly launched website, which you can read below.
CYBERCONNECT2 Co., Ltd. celebrated its 20th anniversary on February16th 2016. For this occasion, in the aim to enforce our development structure and acquire human resources on the global market, we have decided to open a new studio in Montreal, Canada.
With its studios in Fukuoka and Tokyo in Japan, CYBERCONNECT2 Co., Ltd, has developed more than 30 videogames software titles, 7 games for smartphone, planned and produced 2 animation long feature films. Most of these games have been delivered through our clients to users’ hands from all around the world. Our company has also built a reputation and appreciated as a high quality videogame development studio in the industry outside of Japan.
Based on these achievements, and in the goal to enforce our development structure and to acquire a global human resource, we have decided to settle our first overseas development studio in Montreal. With this establishment, we hope we will push ahead our services to provide a greater entertainment experience beyond our users’ expectations.
As CyberConenct2 Co., Ltd. Celebrates its 20th anniversary, to make sure to compete further in this world market, we need to find our “Western Samurai”. We already have some foreign staff in our studios in Fukuoka and Tokyo, but we can’t stay and wait them to come in Japan. There must be many creatives who want to develop with the Japanese touch. We would like to find these talents in Montreal, Quebec, a city where creators from all over the world come and where public institutions support the industry initiatives. Following to Fukuoka and Tokyo, this is our third battleground. Without a doubt, CyberConnect2 way to create is going to change.
This is an interesting development to see and will be interesting to note how CyberConnect2 will evolve with this new change as the years go by and this new studio starts making games. If you fancy applying for a job yourself at the studio, there is more information provided on the site including where to submit applications, though experience as always is required.
