A new report from SEGA confirms that their new deal with Microsoft will not result in Xbox exclusive games.
Game development is a lengthy process in which companies and developers work together to create high-quality titles and technology. This includes partnerships with major AAA companies, with Microsoft and SEGA is one of them. This cooperation between two companies was announced earlier this month, saying that they would use the strengths of the two to form a special next-gen development “alliance”, involving any future game projects. .
Prior to the announcement of the partnership, SEGA games had enjoyed a lot of success recently on Xbox. This ranges from Yakuza franchise reaches a wider audience when it is released through Xbox’s Game Pass to Sonic games improved performance on Xbox Series X. The partnership is part of a larger series of rumors, which indicate that SEGA itself has been acquired by Microsoft or that future games developed by SEGA will become Xbox exclusives. A recent financial earnings report from SEGA details what this alliance entails, along with clarifying what will happen with future game releases.
Main reason why SEGA and Microsoft cooperate was due to the old man’s desire to create brand new “Super Games”, described as giant live-serve games, similar to SEGA’s. Phantasy Star Online. For that, SEGA will need servers, which is where Microsoft’s Azure servers come into play. They will be used to help host, deploy and develop some of these ambitious games. Phantasy Star Online 2 already using an Azure server, so it makes sense for SEGA to use something familiar and having great success.
The report says it will consider investing 100 billion yen ($882 million) in this goal. It then goes on to describe how SEGA and Microsoft already have a close business relationship, as does the way Microsoft started with the ambitious “Super Game” concept, especially since SEGA has developed games for Microsoft like Halo Wars 2.
SEGA then clarified and confirmed that this partnership would not result in Xbox exclusive games. “We’re not talking about releasing games exclusively for Microsoft, but for developing Super Games that will be distributed worldwide with their technical support,” said the company speaker. So despite the rumors, this alliance between Microsoft and Sega will be on the tech side only, and any future live service games will be supported through Microsoft’s Azure servers.
