Apparently Take-Two Interactive is looking to move their “Project Icon” to downtown Las Vegas.
Should a lease agreement be finalized, the company will be moving into a 24,700 sq ft space on E Carson Ave. The same building that the beloved Zappos has recently moved into as well.
Take-Two may also receive around $600,000 in move incentives to bring its presence into downtown Las Vegas by the Redevelopment Agency and Las Vegas City Council. These incentives will not be in vain as the move to DTLV should create about 150 new jobs.
The deal has gone through and it’s official, Take-Two Interactive will be moving 2K West QA Testing studio from Northridge, California to Downtown Las Vegas by early 2013. In a constant state of evalutation, 2K has decided to follow Zappos.com’s footsteps and head to downtown Vegas, as David Ismailer chief operating officer for 2K said, ““As part of that evaluation, 2K has been considering options for its 2K West QA Testing studio and has chosen to relocate our facility to Las Vegas, Nevada. This move will allow 2K to operate a significantly larger and more effective QA facility as we continue to grow our business across all divisions.”
The 2K West Testing studio will bring approximately 150 jobs to Las Vegas. Some of the existing employees will move along with the studio, but many of the open positions will be hired locally and include mostly QA testers, with wages consisting of about $18/hour, including benefits.
