Microsoft and SEGA have officially announced an important strategic partnership. The new alliance between the American company and the Japanese software house will lead to the birth of “Super Games” by SEGA made using the Microsoft’s Azure cloud technology. SEGA aims to make new titles using cloud gaming and has chosen to focus on Microsoft and its cloud solutions.
SEGA uses Microsoft’s cloud technology
SEGA’s Super Game Initiative will lead to new new gaming projects that will leverage Microsoft’s cloud technology. This is a strategic alliance that should guarantee SEGA the possibility of exploiting the right resources to be able to create new stocks capable of guaranteeing future growth. SEGA’s strategy is medium-long term and will lead to the birth of several projects. It is good to specify that it is not an exclusivity agreement for future SEGA titles on Xbox and Windows PC.
The characteristics of the new projects
The guidelines for future SEGA projects are already defined. The titles that will be born using Azure technology will be global, online and focus on building a large community of users. It is therefore possible to hypothesize that it will be online games that will follow a model that is now increasingly widespread in the videogame industry. More details on the projects that will arise from this partnership will arrive in the near future.
