Default Future Plans for American Game Companies

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if I can get someone inside the industry to help answer a particular question for me. The other day I noticed that Insomniac Games was opening an additional office in North Carolina and was wondering if any other companies were thinking about making a similar transition. I know that there are several companies on the east coast, but the amount on the west coast is much greater. I am a NYC suburbia native and I have an east coast bias, I just love it over here. I know that everyone tells me that you need to be willing to move and I am somewhat willing, but still want to stick to the east coast in the end. I have a plan that if I indeed got a job offer on the west coast, I would go out there, get experience with that particular company and then perhaps look for something back over here. After all this blabber, I basically just want to know if anyone has an idea if this could be a trend of the future for companies with the fast growing game industry. Thanks!

Possibly, since cost of living is cheaper on the east coast than the west, as well as building costs and such, I could see this being a growing trend. But there are a lot of companies on the east coast already if you check out http://gamedevmap.com/ you will notice this.
