Ubisoft unveiled the new cloud-native Ubisoft Scalar technology. This is a major new project for the company that aims to support game development by unlocking the power and flexibility of cloud computing for Ubisoft’s game engines. The Ubisoft Scalar team is headed by Ubisoft Stockholm in collaboration with studios in Malmo (Ubisoft Massive), Helsinki (Ubisoft Redlynx), Bucharest and Kiev.
Ubisoft Scalar is the cloud-native technology for the video games of the future
Ubisoft Scalar is a platform-independent technology and aims to offer developers and gamers maximum freedom while taking full advantage of thecloud-native experience for the enhancement of the games of the future. This solution places every component and system of traditional game engines independently in the cloud creating a model distributed on a potentially unlimited number of machines. Games based on this technology can harness a virtually infinite amount of computing power, resulting in virtual worlds and highly realistic simulations.
