Japanese publisher Square Enix wants to position its Canadian studio Eidos Montreal at the very centre of its game development operations, a new report claims.
Its subsidiary Eidos Montreal could grow from about 350 staff to nearly 700 if a deal with state officials is agreed, according to local business publication La Presse Affaires.
But it is believed that Square Enix wants a CA$2 million (1.2m) grant from local government to facilitate the rapid increase in staff. That deal is not thought to have been finalised.
