Warner Bros. Gaming Arm To Open Montreal Studio

Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced it will open a new studio in Montreal, Canada, joining the likes of Ubisoft, EA and BioWare.Canada has recently been the migrating spot of choice for videogame developers, offering tax breaks and incentives, and already home some of the most talented people in the industry.A $7.5 million CAD grant from the Quebec government afforded Warner Bros this opportunity and although the company has not yet given a final location for the development, it will be home to 300 workers by 2015.The studio will handle “high-end interactive gaming product development, digital and cinematographic animation, quality assurance of products developed by the Montreal studio, as well as the adaptation and translation of its products into various languages,” the press released claimed.Clement Gignac, Minister of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade said that it wasn’t just the tax incentives that appealed to Warner Bros.”[Montreal’s workforce] will distribute all around the world multilingual products developed, translated, and adapted right here in Quebec,” with the studio contributing “to the consolidation and the integration of Quebec’s videogame industry.”TIGA has long been fighting for tax breaks here in the UK, Canada being one of this country’s biggest threats.
