April, 27, 2018 (Fredericton, New Brunswick) — Cold Furnace Studios, the independent game developer, today announced the relocation of its corporate headquarters to Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The move will lay the groundwork for the company’s anticipated future growth in a province that actively supports and strongly encourages development of the video game industry.
“Cape Breton is a place that is still very connected to its origins,” said CEO Mark Wheeler. “It’s beautiful, harsh and rustic, and very much in keeping with our military ethos as a company. Nova Scotia offers a good package for the game industry, and all of this combined makes this a great move for us.”
“Sydney is a growing hub for the technology sector in Nova Scotia,” said Laurel Broten, President and CEO, Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI), the business development agency for the Province of Nova Scotia. “At NSBI we work to match our region’s great talent pool with new companies. This includes identifying key relationships with community partners and post-secondary institutions early on so companies have the connections necessary to advance.”
