"  The money will also see 65 new jobs open up at the studio, with the timeline on the project due within the next two to five years."

Hopefully this helps along development on the Too Human sequel. That game could be awesome if a few of the kinks from the first are sorted out.

Silicon Knights?
 
Why not Factor 5? But I guess it's too late for them.

I don't see why this is news. The ontario government has an arts fund that gives independent game companies 20% off the cost of operations, major companies get 10%. Quebec paid $7.5 million for Warner Brothers to set up a studio in Montreal. It's investments like this that have made Canada the third-largest home to game developers.

This is why Canada's status will remain as being "America's hat."

As opposed to the United States being Canada's shorts? 
 
Wait, don't answer that. <_<
