According to this Boston Globe report, the state of Massachusetts may soon offer a 20 percent tax break to game-makers.

From the piece:

An early version of a bill to help subsidize the cost of building film studios in the state included help for computer game developers.

Specifically, the bill would have allowed companies to claim a tax credit for up to 20 percent of the cost of building, converting, or equipping a facility related to “video gaming,” as the company invests at least $500,000.
