Digital Extremes Gets $2.5 Million Grant From Ontario Government To Help Fund Move

Digital Extremes Gets $2.5 Million Grant From Ontario Government To Help Fund Move

April 15, 2011 | By Kyle Orland




London, Ontario-based Digital Extremes, known for their development of the Unreal titles, has received CDN$2.5 million from the provincial government to help fund an intra-city move to a larger space.

The relocation to a new 33,000 sq. ft. space in City Plaza will help the company add another 30 employees to a current slate of 150, according to an IFP report on today's grant announcement.

In 2008, Digital Extremes and Silicon Knights shared a CDN$1 million grant from the Ontario Media Development Corporation to create prototypes for new games.

Ontario has long been friendly to the game industry, increasing the tax breaks it offers developers in 2006 and again in 2009, as well as offering training programs focused on the industry.

Ubisoft announced an 800-person Toronto studio in 2009, and has used the site as a base for Splinter Cell development, with plans for potential new IP development.

Digital Extremes recently announced it will be developing a sequel to 2007's The Darkness, taking over for the original developers from Starbreeze Studios. The company previously handled the multiplayer component on BioShock 2, which was also published by 2K Games.
