Taken from GameSpot, one of my dailies:

Square Enix forming new Canadian studio

Square Enix’s Eidos Montreal studio has yet to ship a game, but the publisher is already considering setting up a second studio in the city, according to a report from French-language paper La Presse.

The publisher told the paper it is looking to establish a new studio that would employ roughly 100 people, with Vancouver, British Columbia; Montreal, Quebec; and Toronto, Ontario, all in the running as possible locations. Square Enix is hoping to take advantage of tax credits as well as government subsidies from whichever province lands the studio. La Presse reports Raleigh, North Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; and Orlando, Florida, had expressed an interest in hosting the new development house.

A Square Enix representative said the company aims to settle on one of the Canadian locations for the studio by May, with an opening expected next year. Once up and running, the studio will focus on development for the next generation of home consoles.

I have only one response:
