Increased Investment in the Digital Gaming Sector: Tax Credits and Beyond

The 2012 Malta Budget plan reveals a continuing commitment to the expansion of the digital games sector. The Government’s investment in the digital gaming industry will be carried out via the establishment of the Malta Games Fund, and by the introduction of a tax credit scheme, aimed at assisting Maltese companies wishing to commission educational or promotional digital games.

These incentives have already attracted international attention within the digital gaming remit. TRC Family Entertainment Ltd, a leading online production business, has chosen Malta to develop an innovative digital game, which is said to be launched in two years’ time. Such development includes the investment of $ 6 million in the island and the relocation of $ 18 million worth of intellectual property to its studio on the island. This business also plans to employ 100 workers over the next couple of years.
