Ubisoft, the world-renowned, French video game publisher, is joining forces with Gamestream for game streaming. Undoubtedly, the partnership will let Ubisoft utilize Gamestream’s game streaming technology.
Gamestream offers white-label cloud solutions for gaming. A white-label cloud service refers to a cloud provider that offers their clients resources that the client, under their brand, can offer their customers.
“We are happy to be working with Gamestream,” Stéphanie Perotti, VP of Online Services at Ubisoft, was quoted as saying in a press release. “With this partnership, we keep extending our game streaming capabilities for our internal and player facing solutions.”
With access to Gamestream’s game streaming technology, Ubisoft plans to improve its game streaming experience for players. Specifically, the company plans to revise how players interact with in-game menus during game streams.
The deal isn’t Ubisoft’s only recent venture. In December 2021, the leading game company launched a beta for Quartz, a platform where gamers can acquire NFTs.
Conversely, other game developers are focusing on creating a metaverse presence. For example, the president of Square Enix recently shared a letter detailing the company’s plans for metaverse gaming.
Gamestream Excited About Deal
According to Ivan Lebeau, president and co-founder of Gamestream, “This deal is the culmination of a professional relationship built over time. It confirms Gamestream’s progress across the entire Cloud Gaming technology chain.” Apparently, in the B2B market, Gamestream is the global leader in game streaming solutions. The company also claims to have technological advancements beyond any other Cloud gaming service to date. Despite this, Gamestream only employs forty people
Some of Ubisoft’s most famous and innovative game franchises include Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Watch Dogs. Additionally, the company is working on new projects such as a VR title where players will step into the role of a Parisian fire brigade member during the April 2019 Notre-Dame fire. The company currently offers a subscription service, Ubisoft+, where players can access over 100 titles. The company’s 2020-21 fiscal year revenue was over €2,200 million.
Gamestream is incredibly excited to team up with the gaming giant; Lebeau went on to say, “Ubisoft is behind some of the most innovative gaming experiences, and we cannot wait to see what their teams achieve with our technology.”
