Warner Bros. Interactive is planning to open a new development studio in Montreal.
Warner Bros. Interactive president Martin Tremblay says the new studio will employ up to 300 staff. He unveiled the plans to local politicians, who have stumped up a $7.5 million grant as well as various tax credits. Montreal, and neighboring Ontario, have attracted a number of development studios. Canada has a long history of attracting media and artistic companies, through generous tax-breaks and subsidies.
A press announcement said the studio would focus on "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."
