At least ten graduate jobs are to be created by the expansion of Gateshead's Eutechnyx.
The games developer is involved in ongoing negotiations with some big names in the digital entertainment industry, and is aiming to take advantage of the anticipated advancements in the games industry, which would see content being made available on the internet, reports the Northern Echo.
Up to 50 positions could be created under these plans.
"We're proud to be a north-east company, and to have established a worldwide reputation from a regional base, and we can now see clear opportunities for us to take our success to a whole new level," the firm's managing director Brian Jobling told the newspaper.
It was recently reported that MSPs have called for tax breaks in the gaming industry in a bid to create more graduate jobs in the sector.
Joe FitzPatrick said competitors from other nations, including the US, all received national or regional tax breaks for computer games.
