“We are very pleased to build upon our strategic expansion into the United Kingdom by establishing our first presence in continental Europe,” said Behaviour Interactive co-founder, CEO, and executive producer Remi Racine in a press release. “The addition of Codeglue’s experienced team further enhances the capabilities of our world-class Services division. We are always eager to pursue opportunities that align with Behaviour’s needs and culture, and Codeglue represented a clear match on both these fronts.”
Behaviour Rotterdam general manager Peter de Jong added, “Codeglue and Behaviour have much in common, having experienced the gaming industry’s many evolutions over the past 23 years.

Founded in Rotterdam in 2000 by high school friends Maurice Sibrandi and Peter de Jong, Codeglue has grown to become home to 30 employees. The studio is known for its expertise in co-development projects across all platforms and was named Best Studio at the 2022 Dutch Game Awards. Codeglue will now operate as Behaviour Rotterdam.
This represents Behaviour’s third European expansion in the last six months. It follows the acquisition of Behaviour UK – North (formerly SockMonkey Studios) in February 2023 and the opening of a new studio, Behaviour UK – South (comprised of former Antimatter Games‘ employees), last month. All three studios serve to further strengthen Behaviour’s industry-leading external development capabilities.
Founded in 1992, Behaviour is a multi-faceted Canadian gaming studio renowned for creating and supporting genre-defying titles. The studio has enjoyed immense success with its original horror–action multiplayer game, Dead by Daylight. Behaviour also provided external development services for many of the gaming industry’s global leaders. Since April 2022, Behaviour has undertaken a major strategic expansion beyond its Montreal headquarters, establishing and acquiring studios in Toronto, Seattle, the United Kingdom, and now the Netherlands.
