Microsoft to open major game studio in Victoria, BC

Posted by Rob Lewis

Microsoft is opening a major game design studio in downtown Victoria early in the new year that could employ up to 60 people.

In an exclusive interview with the Times Colonist, the technical director of the project said Victoria was chosen for its strategic proximity to Microsoft headquarters in Redmond and for its "livability," which will help attract the best and brightest in creative, production and design in the global gaming industry.

Microsoft has been remodelling former government office space on the top floor of the Dogwood Building at 1019 Wharf Street, at the foot of Fort Street, over the past several months.

The facility is to be called Microsoft Studios Victoria.
