Genshin Impact developer miHoYo opens a studio in Montréal to work on a new action-adventure title

This is their first development site in North America

miHoYo, the developer and publisher of games like Genshin Impact, Honkai Impact 3rd, and other very popular games, is now opening the doors to its new development studio in Montréal, Canada. Montréal has been a pretty popular hub among game development studios with big names like EA, Gameloft, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and others establishing their bases in the city.

This new studio will be hiring 100 employees for their Canada development team as they coordinate with the global development team to work on games. And the first game that this team will be working on has already been teased! miHoYo will be working on a brand new AAA open-world actionadventure game. The game will feature shooting-based gameplay and is set in a “living, breathing” paranormal world.

The new concept that miHoYo is going to work on does sound quite interesting and it will likely be coming to mobile along with other platforms. 

This year marks miHoYo’s tenth anniversary. Since our inception, guided by the mission of Tech Otakus Save the World, we have invested continuously in animation rendering, artificial intelligence, and cross-platform development technology to bolster our research and development capabilities. We are committed to publishing our games globally across console, PC, and mobile platforms, owing to our thriving in-house distribution capabilities. We have gained a plethora of game development and operations experience as a result of Genshin Impact’s recent global release, which we can harness to create even higher-quality games to our players

stated Forrest Liu, co-founder of miHoYo

“Montréal is home to a thriving game development community and is well-known for its world-class universities. We deeply value the expertise and creativity that the local ecosystem provides and believe it will empower miHoYo to create games with their imagination,” he added. For now, that’s all that has been revealed.
