Discussing the future of video games and the technological opportunities offered by game streaming, Alain Corre of Ubisoft offered his MCV colleagues his point of view on the subject, believing that Google Stadia’s servers will be the perfect springboard for a new generation of games.
Indirectly reconnecting to the words recently spoken by the boss of Take-Two on PS5 and Xbox Scarlett, the manager of the transalpine videogame giant considered it appropriate to declare that “in the past, we have witnessed the birth of many technologies, such as the Wii with its Wiimote or like “Microsoft Kinect. We believe, however, that streaming and cloud gaming technologies represent something even more important for our industry. We like the idea that the consumer has more and more freedom of choice between the purchase of the physical game, the digital download or streaming. Thanks to this, we will be able to attract new categories of players”.
Going into the specifics of the evolution of video games that should be guaranteed by streaming, Alain Corre explains that “with the capabilities of servers in the cloud, we will be able to create a new generation of games in a few years. Servers will help our creators improve artificial intelligence in their titles, to add more characters or NPCs, this change will have the effect of a storm, so we want to support Google with its Stadia project, their entry into the videogame market will help to grow the technology streaming and to start the new generation of cloud-based video games “ .
The servers of the new Big G game streaming service will officially open in November. In the meantime, you can always learn more about the subject by reading our specials on lights and shadows of Stadia’s cloud gaming and on the clash between the Stadia and XCloud clouds.
