Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two may soon bring at least 150 jobs to Las Vegas, as the company is now in talks with the city to open a brand new downtown office.

According to the official proposal documents, the Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency is offering up to $600,000 in incentives to Take-Two if it opens this new branch.

Neither party has revealed what the new office would be for, but the proposed agreement notes that the median wage of Take-Two's Las Vegas employees would be $18 an hour, suggesting the facility would likely be used for QA.

With the exception of companies like Petroglyph Games, Las Vegas isn't typically known as a hub for game development, but this wouldn't be the first time a publisher opened a QA facility in a new city thanks to government incentives. In 2008, for instance, Electronic Arts opened a new QA facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana after receiving funding from the state.

[Update: Take-Two has accepted the city's offer, and has announced that it will be moving its 2K West QA Testing studio from Northridge, California to downtown Las Vegas. Take-Two expects to complete the move in 2013.]
