State: Video Game Enterprise Means 75 New Jobs in New Orleans Area

Strain emphasized in public statements and an interview that Possibility Space is focused on developing a new and uplifting experience that will bring video gamers together. Without giving specific details of Possibility Space’s plans, he cited as a “very small example” an Xbox game, Sea of Thieves, in which gamers playing interactively have responsibilities on a ship “and you go exploring the high seas together — a much more profound reason for being interactive with other people online.” ADVERTISEMENTLifestyle’As seen on TikTok’ is the new ‘As seen on TV’Winter heating bills set to jump as inflation hits homeJennifer Garner among guests for Katie Couric book tour Trisha Yearwood on making jerky, bacon straws and wontons

Possibility Space is a project of entrepreneur Jeff Strain, who is known for creating Seattle-based ArenaNet, which was acquired by NCsoft, and Undead Labs, which was acquired by Microsoft. Gov. John Bel Edwards said in Wednesday’s announcement that the new studio “could be a game-changer” for an already established video game development industry in Louisiana that includes several operations in New Orleans and one in Baton Rouge. Possibility Space will also be a “physically distributed studio” with some of the industry’s top talent working remotely from a variety of locations. However, Strain and state officials also stressed that Possibility Space is hiring locally.

The business is expected to take advantage of state incentives, including tax credit programs that require that work be physically done in Louisiana. “Our intention is to really start reaching out both in the city of New Orleans but also across the state of Louisiana and, frankly, the entire South, and start building onramps for people into this industry. That’s why we’re here,” Strain said. “We are really focusing on mentorship and training and making opportunities for people to come into the industry here.”
