George Brown College Expands Video Game Design Program Facilities

Game on! George brown College has announced they are expanding their video game design program facilities by opening a digital media “incubator” in Toronto.

“The research we conducted on the feasibility of a video gaming incubator reveals a real need for more applied research and innovation – something our students and faculty have clearly been able to provide in other industries,” said Anne Sado, President of George Brown College.

The new facility will be located at 333 King St. East in Toronto, and presents a unique way to bring together video game start-up companies and students.

“With the growth rate in the gaming sector in Ontario predicted to reach 31 per cent over the next three years, according to the Entertainment Software Association of Canada, George Brown College is in a perfect position to provide a leadership role in nurturing the talent in this industry,” said Sado.

George Brown College is opening the facility to respond to the approximately 310 new students in their video game design and development programs over the last three years.

It opens its doors in September and will house 10 offices, and between 100 and 150 square feet for start-ups and small companies who want to grow and connect with fresh video game design talent.
