Square Enix is reportedly looking to open up another studio in the Great White North, good old Canada, in addition to Eidos Montreal. The locations in the running include Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto.

Square Enix is expected to make a decision on the location for the new studio by May this year, and according to La Presse, will employ at least 100 individuals. The studio is expected to open doors and begin development on games for "the new consoles from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo" by 2012.

Eidos Interactive and its Montreal office, acquired by Square Enix in April 2009, are hard at work on Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game is confirmed for an August 26 release.
