New Square Enix Studio to Focus on Xbox 720

According to a La Presse Affaires report, Square Enix is to set up a second Canadian development studio for work on next generation consoles.

The new Canadian studio will "probably" open in 2012, and, according to La Presse, "its employees will work on large-scale games for new generations of home consoles."

Square’s Stéphane d’Astous said: "The new consoles from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo will require more attention and more staff. We want to prepare ourselves."

According to the story, "three cities are vying for the studio at least 100 employees: Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal."

"The negotiating process has begun," said D’Astous.

The publisher is looking to take advantage of Quebec tax credits, which will apparently amount to "millions of dollars".

Square Enix will decide the location of his second studio in Canada by the end of May, but the timeframe is "a goal, not an ultimatum," according to D’Astous.

Square Enix already has a major developer in place in Canada: Eidos Montreal is currently working on Deus Ex and Thief reboots.
