SEGA And Microsoft Collaborate To Make Great Next-Gen Games With Azure

Both SEGA And Microsoft have announced a strategic alliance focused on a cloud computing service called Azure.


What a way to start November! SEGA and Microsoft have announced a new collaboration focused on the development of next-generation video games. This strategic alliance will allow the Japanese company to produce large-scale titles in an environment centred on Azure, the American firm’s cloud platform that continues to provide technologies.

This union has been made public through an official statement where more aspects of it are detailed. The text talks about the initiative, which bears the name of Super Game and points towards “global games” and “large-scale production”. They specifically refer to terms like “global”, “online”, or “community” to define the project, of which they cannot give precise details.

“With the world now more connected than ever and the widespread implementation during these years of 5G and cloud services, consumers can more easily enjoy high-quality entertainment content at any time,” the statement said. “The ecosystem surrounding the video game industry continues to evolve and expand as new tools and more sophisticated technologies are found.”

“For all these reasons, video games continue to grow as a central medium for gamers worldwide, with access to a wide catalogue of increasingly diverse gaming experiences and communities,” he continues. “This alliance represents SEGA looking to the future, working with Microsoft to read these trends as they accelerate in the future, to optimize development processes and continue to deliver high-quality experiences to gamers using the Azure cloud technology.”

The collaboration will seek to ” build new technological evolutions “, prioritizing “the network infrastructure and the communication tools necessary for global online services.” In addition, they mention that SEGA will be able to adapt effectively to different work styles and possible future infrastructure changes with Azure.

“We seek to advance the development of our games further so that fans around the world can enjoy our titles,” said Yukio Sugino, president of SEGA Corporation. “In this regard, we want to build an alliance that makes use of SEGA’s powerful development capabilities and Microsoft’s cutting-edge technology.”

As we have already mentioned, there has been no talk of any project in mind or games in preparation for the future. The collaboration and backbone have been announced in Azure. Still, it has been done consistently using very ambitious language, unusual for a SEGA that has suffered the effects of the pandemic in its arcades in Japan.

Microsoft, for its part, is in better shape with its new generation machines: Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Despite the shortage of components, sales are being a success worldwide, and the company intends to strengthen its Stock of consoles for Christmas and some of its most important releases of the year.
