Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett dropped a hint at the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership Annual meeting that his son, who works as a project manager for Electronic Arts (EA), one of the dominant players in the video game business, could play a role in bringing the company to Pittsburgh.

“…it would continue to encourage the development of the local industry,” Buchanan's David Gurwin told the Pittsburgh Business Times. "I think it’s a great recruiting tool for all the companies to have a larger critical mass here.” Gurwin also told the publication that it would be a great win for the local industry to have them establish an office here.

The article noted that, “EA has more than 300 million registered video game players in 200 countries,” and employs over 9,000 people with annual revenue of $3.8 billion last year.
