BioWare is to form a new studio group within EA Montreal, Gama reports.
The new outfit will be 30 staff strong, and will support the Mass Effect 2 dev team in Edmonton.
"Our new presence... will be located within the existing EA Montreal facilities," said BioWare boss Ray Muzyka.
"It's great that we have a strong foundation to build out of."
Artists, animators, designers and others are to supplement the ME2 team.
"We'll be working together with our friends at EA Montreal," said Muzyka.
"There's a great studio here continuing full-force with a whole bunch of really cool, exciting things as well."
