Gameloft to open a studio in New Orleans

Gameloft to open a studio in New Orleans
It's already got around 6,000 staff, and studios all over the world, but French mobile publisher Gameloft is looking to staff up still further.

According to Joystiq, it's taking advantage of generous local tax incentives and opening a new office in New Orleans.

"We expect to employ an approximate 150 people in our New Orleans studio over the course of the next 10 years," Gameloft's Samir El Agili, GM for the US and Latin America told the website.

The studio will handle development across digital platforms including downloadable games for mobile, social and consoles.

Let's hope there's no repeat of the infamous complaints from its New Zealand studio.
