Brain drain from rebellious machines: AI will be a “co-pilot” in the development of Xbox titles, but artificial intelligence divides
Since one controversy wasn’t enough, inclusiveness towards other platforms in the family of Xbox finds a high price in the unexpected announcement of AI in developmentdefining the partnership established with Inworld a “co-pilot” use of theartificial intelligence. Developers will be able to use algorithms to create scripts, dialogue trees, quest lines and more. The general manager for the inclusion of these technologies, Haiyan Zhang, is very excited about giving “better tools” to creators. But although Ilya Gelfenbeyn of Inworld calls AI “an integral part of development for a long time”, the inevitable similarities with Bing Chat and especially ChatGPT have proven predictably divisive.

Is “AI: Artificial Intelligence” No Longer the Title of a Movie, But the Future of Xbox Development?
The statement to the foreign industry press released by Embark Studios for the use of AI-generated voices in The Finals talks about how “creating games without actors” is not “the goal”, but the use of artificial intelligence in art is a particularly controversial topic. An example above all: the actors’ union SAG-AFTRA is pushing for the right to strike for artists in the video game field. “With the fraudulent exploitation of artificial intelligence and unpunctual wages,” he declared Ray Rodriguez of SAG-AFTRA, “those who work in the video game industry encounter the same problems as workers in the television and film industries.” Microsoft calls AI a purely optional tool; according to Zhang it is simply a means to “make it easier for developers to bring their vision to light.”
