Possibility Space Builds New Orleans, Louisiana, Video Game Development Studio

Possibility Space, a game development studio that builds large-scale video games for a global audience, will build a video game development studio in New Orleans, Louisiana. The project is expected to create 75 new jobs.

“After two decades of building successful video game studios, I’m delighted to be starting my next company at home in Louisiana,” company president Jeff Strain said. “We’re building relationships with our customers, and want to give them the best experience possible. We’re building relationships with our team members, and want to give them an environment that’s productive, safe and healthy. Equally important, we’re building relationships with our community, locally and statewide, and intend to be a permanent engine for Louisiana’s economic development and jobs. This great state has a joy and a strength to it that makes it the perfect place to both raise my family and build my business. I’m appreciative for the vision of the state Legislature and the governor as they work together to support emerging tech businesses like mine.”

Possibility Space is expected to utilize Louisiana’s Digital Interactive Media and Software Program and Entertainment Job Creation Program incentives.

“The arrival of Possibility Space further secures our standing as a leader in interactive entertainment development, which continues to offer high-paying tech jobs for Louisiana residents,” Governor John Bel Edwards said. “With an industry innovator such as Jeff Strain at the helm, this project could be a game-changer for video game development in Louisiana. We welcome Possibility Space as we continue to expand this exciting sector of our economy.”

Founded in 2021 by Jeff Strain and a diverse and experienced team of game and media industry veterans, Possibility Space is built from the ground up as a distributed studio, allowing developers to live and work where they are happiest. The studio also works to identify, mentor, train, and hire individuals from underserved and overlooked communities and backgrounds.

“With the addition of the Possibility Space studio, Greater New Orleans can now legitimately stake a claim as one of the leading video game development hubs in America,” said President and CEO Michael Hecht of Greater New Orleans Inc. “The leader behind this project, Jeff Strain, is an industry legend, with titles like Guild War and State of Decay to his credit. When paired with the vision from his wife, Annie, it is clear that Possibility Space is aptly named.”
