Wilson: Government support increases investment in EA Sports
Government-supported tax breaks are just one of the ways EA is able to continue investing in EA Canada, said EA Sports SVP Andrew Wilson.
“EA has many studios that takes advantage of game tax breaks and EA Canada is certainly one of them,” he said. “We’d make huge investments regardless, but tax breaks makes the whole process easier – I wouldn’t say a lot easier, but we appreciate the government support at all the studios where we get it.”
Wilson goes on to say other EA studios in Canada, other than the Vancouver studio, also receive breaks such as the Edmonton and Montreal studios of BioWare.
