QUEBEC CITY, Dec. 14, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - More than 12 years after founding Beenox, Quebec City's biggest video game developer, studio head, Dominique Brown, has decided to pursue new personal challenges and will pass the torch to longtime colleagues Sylvain Morel and Thomas Wilson, who will take the helm as co-studio heads on December 21, 2012.
