Volition is looking to expand significantly in the city of Champaign.
After impressing us with not one but two excellent open world titles in Saints Row The Third and Saints Row IV, Volition is seeking to expand further. According to The News-Gazette, the developer is looking at $200,000 in incentives from the city of Champaign to expand its downtown offices for adding 100 more team members.
If it doesn’t expand in downtown Champaign, it may look at other locations which would be less cost-intensive. The Champaign City Council will apparently be looking at this request later today.
Currently, Volition contains +200 employees and occupies 47,000 square feet One Main Plaza’s second and third floor. The developer was previously owned by THQ, under which it published the third Saints Row title before the publisher went bankrupt. The studio was later picked up by Koch Media under its Deep Silver games division. Deep Silver also owns franchises like Metro, Dead Island and much more.
