Game Development Outsourcing Firm Babel Media Doubles Montreal Facility

Categories: Canadian Developers

Following the lead of its target customers, Eidos, EA, Ubisoft and others, game industry outsourcing and post production specialist Babel Media has announced plans to increase its Montreal capacity from 150 to 500 employees. From Babel’s press release:

“We have recently signed contracts with clients who, without exaggeration, own some of the greatest Intellectual Property (IP) in the world,“ said Algy Williams, Managing Director of Babel. “We will be testing their games across all platforms, including PS3 and Xbox 360, and we need to recruit talented and motivated people who are looking for a career in the games industry”.

It is unclear from the press releases whether or not Babel benefits from Quebec’s game industry tax incentives.

I worked in Babel at Montreal. Worst place in my career. Bad managers, poor salaries, bad work.

I worked there as well, for a little less than a year. Thinking about going back, even tho the pay was peanuts and the demands on employees for overtime and yadda yadda… Would you recommend any other gaming places in Montreal? Like Bug-tracker, for example?

Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and by no means seem to get something done.
