About Us

Within a constantly changing landscape of business and development models in the interactive entertainment industry, Massive Bear Studios provides a niche co-development service. We are a group of veteran video game software developers who can provide high quality short-term staffing to studios in need of additional resources, without having to deal with the cumbersome overhead of finding and hiring full time employees.

With over 30 years of combined development experience on 15 shipped titles, the three directors of Massive Bear bring expertise to the table that cover all domains of AAA software and an impressive range of genres. We have developed for the XBox 360, Sony Playstation 3 and Ninendo Wii consoles. Our location in Vancouver gives us access to one of the largest game development cultures in the world, which provides access to staff ready to tackle the next project.

We have worked with some of the largest studios in the world, including Microsoft, 2K Games, and Ubisoft. We work with both local and international studios and are willing to work on-site if required. We welcome all types of contracts, from last minute firefighting to the full development of titles.
