THQ Announces New Development Studio In Montreal, Canada

Wahey, looks like Denis Dyack wasn't kidding when he said the future was bright for Canadian games development as THQ has announced plans to launch a new studio in Montreal creating around 400 jobs in the next 5 years.

The studio's focus will be on core games with the first title planned to release in 2013. Steve DeCosta, THQ’s core boss commented:
“Montreal’s outstanding pool of creative digital media talent and its highly regarded university system makes this the ideal location to support our future product and technology development needs."

“Moreover, government support, in the form of reimbursable tax credits and other incentives, enabled Montreal to stand out as the best combination of creative talent and favourable economics of the cities we evaluated for our new studio.”
