In a press release posted earlier today (November 1), Sega has shared that it has “agreed in principle” with Microsoft to explore “ways for Sega to produce large-scale, global games in a next-generation development environment built on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform”.
The statement mentions the phrase “Super Game”, which Sega details will be “a new initiative for developing new and innovative titles” with a focus on global communities and “IP utilisation”.
Sega president Yukio Sugino has shared that “by considering a strategic partnership with Microsoft, we seek to further advance our game development so that our titles can be enjoyed by fans all over the world”.
Meanwhile, Microsoft CVP Sarah Bond has said that she looks forward to seeing Sega “explore new ways to create unique gaming experiences for the future using Microsoft cloud technologies”.
