Square Enix Announces Project FLARE
Today Square Enix unveiled Project FLARE which aims to create new games and experiences using the cloud. Working with companies such as Ubisoft, Project FLARE is a technological breakthrough in cloud game architecture.
The project is said to provide Hollywood-quality animation running in real time to deepen the player’s immersion, uncapping AI physics processing to realize the extremes of realism and fantasy and video streams allowing existing games to be enjoyed in new ways.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says “Ubisoft and Square Enix share a similar vision for how cloud gaming will drive our industry forward. The technical advances made by Square Enix and Ubisoft’s growing expertise in cloud computing infrastructure will eventually help us deliver gaming experiences that are more accessible and immersive than anything available today.”
Former Square Enix CEO now Chairman, Yoichi Wada stated “In the game industry, revolutions in both technology and business models have evolved content, and growth has come from the new game experiences born of that content. In recent years, growth has been driven entirely by the business models such as F2P. Finally, the technological breakthrough has arrived.”
