Take-Two, the publisher of Borderlands 2, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, etc, might be opening new offices in the gambling capital of the world, Las Vegas according to some documents between the publishing company and The City of Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency. If they do open a new facility, it would employ a minimum of 150 persons full-time, all of whom would earn a “gross average hourly wage, including overtime, of at least $18 per hour.”
The agreement also states that, in order for Take-Two to be eligible for the (up to) $600,000 in incentives, 15 percent of all full-time employees must be “fuIl time residents within the Agency’s redevelopment area” as well as “members of racial minorities, women, disabled or veterans.”
The purpose of the facility is still uncertain, and whether this could be a new studio or a satellite testing office us unknown. It’s worth noting, however, that while $18 an hour sounds like QA/testing wages, the minimum average that has been stated in the agreement may not be the actual average if this deal is completed.
