Belgium-based Divinity: Original Sin developer Larian is opening a new development studio in Quebec City, Canada.
It aims to hire 40 staff at the office over the next three years to work on its own unique projects and also collaborate with other studios.
The news comes shortly after the Quebec government confirmed tax incentives would rise back to 37.5 per cent, one of the highest subsidies in the game industry.
“We were impressed by the openness and energy of the regional stakeholders and by Quebec City’s advantages in terms of qualified workers, competitive operating costs, infrastructure, and quality of life,” said Larian Studios president Swen Vincke.
As well as its new Quebec branch, Larian Studios also has offices in Ghent, Belgium and St Petersburg, Russia.
