At this year’s GDC (Game Developers Conference), Ubisoft unveiled a new development tool.
Ubisoft’s Ubisoft studio and the technology division of the French publisher are behind Ubisoft Scalar. The promises are that developers can even design an unlimited number of players to achieve significantly larger worlds and better simulate with the tool. Of course, Scalar knows what it is thanks to cloud computing. This is not a game engine, but an option to provide existing technology (such as Unreal Engine) with cloud tuning. This will remove the barrier for limited hardware, but it will be a different challenge for developers because they won’t know exactly what to do with the capacity they have.
Of course, we’ve heard such huge PR promises before, with Google Stadia offering a similar approach to cloud-only gaming…and then Google getting rid of its in-house development studios (and because of that, it moved from Ubisoft to Electronic Arts and Stadia Games & Entertainment to Jade). ). Raymond to Sony-sponsored Haven Studios) and Alphabet, Google’s parent company, is now excited to have licensed its cloud technology. (When will Google Stadia enter the key?)
Ubisoft Scalar will debut at a new IP address at Ubisoft Stockholm, but other studios within the French publisher will also have access to Scalar’s technology, including teams in Kyiv, Malmö or Bucharest. According to Patrick Bach, CEO of Ubisoft Stockholm, we will have to wait a little longer for our first Scalaros game, and since the studio was founded nearly five years ago, we may have to wait a little longer for the French. To actually present it…
So with nearly unlimited computing power, worlds wide, deep and detailed which would be impossible without the cloud; With the help of micro-processes stacked in the cloud, developers can improve without the participation of others, and there is no need to interrupt game availability while adding new features or components in the process. By removing technological barriers, developers can focus on creativity and design because they can create unprecedented experiences.
