London's Digital Extremes will receive a $2.5 million grant from the Province of Ontario.
The grant will allow the London-based video game studio to create 30 new jobs and protect 53 existing jobs, with more than 150 people currently working at the studio.
Digital Extremes is developing a "3D Evolution Game Engine," that automates programming work required to create a new 3D video game. The technology will reduce the time and cost involved in bringing new games to market.
"We believe the 3D Evolution Game Engine we're developing here in London will provide an enhanced platform allowing other video game developers to fully leverage the creative talents of their team. This investment signals an exciting new phase for our company," Michael Schmalz, President, Digital Extremes. Pin It
